Casey belts out ‘Voice’ for live music fest debut

BASS Hill superstar Casey Donovan has performed a moving rendition of ‘You’re the Voice’ to launch the next Great Southern Nights initiative.

She will be among the many household names, emerging talents and grassroots local acts performing at various venues across the State, including Bankstown Sports Club and The Mill in Milperra, for the three-week program (March 18 to April 10).
With a star-studded line up of Australian artists – such as Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Jimmy Barnes, Illy, Kate Ceberano, Marcia Hines, Montaigne, Sheppard and The Jungle Giants – performing hundreds of Covid-safe gigs across NSW, there’s a good chance you’ll find a Great Southern Nights gig near you.
ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd says Great Southern Nights will reignite the live music scene after an extraordinarily challenging time for the industry.
“Great Southern Nights will have artists, crew and music venues back to doing what they love and do best – putting on shows and getting people out to experience the joy of live music again,” Ms Herd said.
“It was such a huge success in 2020 and is exactly what our industry needs right now, so we’re excited to see Australia’s best talent wanting to be involved in 2022.”
Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade, Stuart Ayres, says he is thrilled that so many talented artists have joined the initiative, which will create jobs for artists and crew, revenue for venues “that have done it tough over the past few years”.
“The live music scene makes a significant contribution to our social and economic wellbeing. As part of our roadmap to recovery it is vital that we get it back on its feet,” Mr Ayres said.
