New Zealand Artists Perform for Isol-Aid Festival

September 9th 2020
New Zealand artists - The Phoenix Foundation, Anthonie Tonnon, CHAII, Wax Chattels, Purple Pilgrims, Mild Orange and Princess Chelsea - perform @ Isol-Aid Festival.

On 12 September seven New Zealand acts virtually head over to the land of giant marsupials and even larger rock formations to perform the first all Aotearoa segment of Isol-Aid. Tune in from 3:40pm NZ time and enjoy the unique and wonderful sounds of The Phoenix Foundation, Anthonie Tonnon, CHAII, Wax Chattels, Purple Pilgrims, Mild Orange and Princess Chelsea.

 

Described by ABC News as "the biggest thing in Australian music to come out of the lockdown”, Isol-Aid is an award winning online music festival and gathering space, where every weekend artists play 20-minute sets streamed live via their Instagram accounts. At the end of their set, each musician tag-teams the next artist to play, sending fans down a rabbit hole of new music discovery, community, and good feels. 

 

The festival was created in the days after the coronavirus pandemic reached Australia, when it became immediately clear that musicians and their teams would be heavily impacted by the cancellation of their shows and tours. At that time, it also became clear that the music community would have to disperse and could no longer meet up at small or large venues, record stores or festivals, to participate, support, buy merch, sing and dance to their favourite artists. 

 

Since the festival started Isol-Aid has seen artists such as Courtney Barnett, Julia Jacklin, Marlon Williams, Jeff Tweedy, Arlo Parks, Jolie Holland, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Faye Webster, Frankie Cosmos, Julien Baker, Disq, Black Belt Eagle Scout, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, and many more play live sets.
