Aussie artists join livestream for the planet as Earth Hour goes digital

Australian artists Jack River, Polish Club, Bobby Alu, Ella Arber, Dulcie and Alice Skye are among the first names to be announced on the line-up for #EarthHourLive this Saturday, 28 March.

They will join host journalist and broadcaster Patrick Abboud at 8.30pm AEDT to kick off the livestream party for the planet, with live crosses to lights out from around the country, performances, special guests and giveaways, with more names to be announced later this week.

WWF-Australia has launched the #EarthHourLive streaming event to help people stay connected and be part of Earth Hour during the COVID-19 crisis.

WWF-Australia CEO Dermot O’Gorman said: “Staying connected as a community and looking for positive ways we can contribute is more important than ever as the world responds to the coronavirus crisis.”

“The act of switching off our lights for Earth Hour has always been a show of solidarity for stronger action on climate change and a chance for millions of people worldwide to collectively raise their voice for nature.

“This year will be dramatically different as we all strive to control the spread of COVID-19. Most of us will be spending our Saturday night at home, but we can still connect to a community of supporters around Australia and be part of a positive moment for the planet.

“We’re thrilled to have so many incredible artists getting onboard with us to bring #EarthHourLive to Australia. We hope you’ll join us on Saturday night and show your support for Earth Hour in a new way,” said Mr O’Gorman.

While public Earth Hour events have been cancelled to prioritise community safety and comply with government COVID-19 requirements, landmarks around Australia including the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Luna Park, The Wheel of Brisbane, Melbourne Star Observation Wheel and The Bell Tower in Perth will still be switching off their lights in a symbolic moment that will be streamed as part of #EarthHourLive.

So on Saturday 28 March, switch off your lights at 8.30pm and log in to join the #EarthHourLive stream on YouTubeFacebook and Instagram and at earthhour.org.au/earth-hour-live.
