Australian artists are banding together for marriage equality.


Some of Australia’s biggest music artists, celebrities and entertainment personalities including Jimmy Barnes, have come together for YesFest, a massive, national concert in support of marriage equality.

YesFest will be held at Spotless Stadium, the beloved Sydney Showgrounds music arena previously home to Stereosonic, Soundwave and Big Day Out, during the crucial final week of postal voting.

The stadium spectacular promises never before seen and never seen again collaborations and special performances from across the Australian music spectrum.

Flight Facilities released a statement saying, “We’re supporting YesFest because we’d rather stand for people's rights than stand in their way of receiving them.”

"Love is love and if you are lucky enough to find the one you love, why should anyone be able to tell you you can’t get married."

Jimmy Barnes said "When I was asked to do this show I jumped at the chance to say Yes because I believe in marriage equality. Love is love and if you are lucky enough to find the one you love, why should anyone be able to tell you you can’t get married. It’s a basic human right."

The first YesFest line-up:

Client Liaison
Elizabeth Rose
Flight Facilities (DJ)
Heaps Gay DJs
Jack Colwell
KirinJ Callinan
Killing Heidi
KLP
Megan Washington
Nick Cester (Jet)
Northeast Party House
The Preatures
Tkay Maidza
Touch Sensitive
and very special guest, Jimmy Barnes

This event will be hosted by Australia’s favourite son and TV personality Osher Günsberg, with vocal supporters including Billy Russell, Christian Wilkins, Courtney Act, Danny Clayton, Jackie Loeb, Jordan Raskopoulos and many more.

The event is designed to encourage and empower Australians, particularly millennials, to vote yes and make things fair for everyone.

Recent voting patterns ... have shown that pre-emptive complacency can be the biggest barrier to a successful outcome

Regardless of polls or early results indications, recent voting patterns in both the US and UK have shown that pre-emptive complacency can be the biggest barrier to a successful outcome.

In a similar vein to Coachella, YesFest will be broadcast live across the country on YouTube.

Spotless Stadium on Sunday October 29
