Isol-Aid: The Show Must Go On
Emily Ulman, one of the founders of Isol-Aid, joined us on the Daily to shed light on the work she is doing to give the live music industry in Australia a lifeline. Isol-Aid is a socially distanced music festival that allows artists to reach their audiences in a time when traditional events have been deemed too risky in the midst of COVID-19. To aid musicians in need, the festival encourages the audience to donate to support act, a charity providing relief services for the music industry.
Emily has played at Isol-Aid her self and provides an interesting insight into the perspective of a musician playing without the immediacy of an audience, describing the challenges and opportunities this can pose.
