Postponed: No Coal Zone
This event has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.
English musician Jamie xx will headline No Coal Zone, an immense concert at Hordern Pavilion next Saturday, March 14, to raise money for Clientearth, one of the world’s top environmental law charities. The producer will be joined by Aussie electronic groups The Avalanches and Midnight Juggernauts (who will both perform DJ sets), Heaps Gay and Friends, Sydney muso ptwiggs, and DeepFaith. As concert-goers enter the Hordern Pavilion, Jonathan Zawada and Mark Pritchard’s otherworldly musical film collaboration The Four Worlds will screen.
All money raised from the concert will be donated to Clientearth, which uses the law to curb polluting industries and hold governments to account. It’s fighting the construction of more than 330 coal-fired power stations around the world – whose environmental consequences would be equivalent to chopping down 152 billion mature trees. Clientearth has stopped the building of more than 36 planned coal stations around the world already. Coal supplies more energy than any other source worldwide, yet it is the dirtiest of all fossil fuels.
