The redesigned Levi’s® Music Relief Fund is assisting 10 artists, distributing between them $45,000 in cash. Each individual will also receive an online mental health support package from The Indigo Project and a customised digital upskilling course from ‘Blocks’ by Bolster. The first five artists have been announced, with final round applications open now to determine the final five musicians.

The first five Levi’s® Music Relief Fund round winners are: The Beths, Tkay Maidza, Miiesha, Haiku Hands and Jaguar Jonze.

All Australian and New Zealand residents who have showcased at BIGSOUND during its 18 year history are eligible to apply to the Levi’s® Music Relief Fund.
