Staying home this Saturday night will reward you with a front row ticket to one of the hottest gigs of the year as Australian and New Zealand artists unite for Music From The Home Front, a special televised concert event airing on Nine in Australia and Three in New Zealand.
Following Wednesday’s stellar lineup of artists, the organisers are thrilled to announce the following artists have been added to the lineup (in alphabetical order);

Performing on Anzac Day, a day of enormous cultural and historical significance to Australia and New Zealand, has struck a chord with many.
RSL Australia said of Music From The Home Front: “In times when the same spirit that underpinned the Anzac tradition is combatting the COVID-19 menace, the RSL is proud to be associated with this fabulous initiative.”
It is no secret that, alongside many Aussie and Kiwis, the music industry has been hard hit by COVID-19. For this very reason Music From The Home Front has chosen not to run this event as a fundraiser when many in the community are counting every dollar they have.
All artists have volunteered to be involved, however each performance on Music From The Home Front will be paid a fee to contribute to the performers’ time and their costs, with organisers already being told that some artists plan to pass this fee onto their bands and crew or organisations such as music industry charities Support Act (Australia) or MusicHelpsLive (New Zealand). Music From The Home Front will also have information running throughout the evening on ways viewers can support the RSL, Support Act and MusicHelpsLive if household budgets allow. Music From The Home Front brings Australia and New Zealand together in a time of adversity and allows us a moment of respite from our current concerns.
Already announced artists on Music From The Home Front include (in alphabetical order) Ben Lee, Birds of Tokyo with West Australian Symphony Orchestra, Courtney Barnett, Dave Dobbyn, Delta Goodrem, G Flip, Ian Moss, Jimmy Barnes, Kevin Parker (Tame Impala), Marlon Williams, Missy Higgins, Paul Kelly, The Rubens, The Wiggles, Vance Joy, Vika & Linda Bull with more to be announced in coming days.
Proceedings will kick off on Anzac Day (this Saturday 25 April 2020), from 7.30pm local time on Nine in Australia (9Now at 7.30pm AEST) and in New Zealand tune into Three at 9.30pm NZST (ThreeNow at 9.30pm NZST).
There are no queues, no bag checks, no waiting at the bar or food stands. This concert is 100% contact free home delivered, so get ready to kick back and enjoy a great night of music from some of Australia and New Zealand’s greatest musicians.
