The lineup also includes Courtney Barnett, Ian Moss, Kevin Parker from Tame Impala, Missy Higgins, Paul Kelly, The Rubens and Vance Joy.

It is believed many of the artists will be performing from home, in a similar format to Lady Gaga’s livestreamed benefit concert that raised $127million for coronavirus relief over the weekend.

Michael Gudinski, the CEO of Frontier Touring and chairman of the Mushroom Group, said that musicians often help out in times of trouble. 

‘Throughout history, music has helped people through times of hardship,’ he said.

‘Music From The Home Front is about uniting Australians and New Zealanders through the power of music in a time that we all need a bit of hope and happiness.’

Channel Nine executive Adrian Swift said the project was a ‘salute from Australia and New Zealand’s music communities to everyone serving our nations under lockdown’.

Australia’s coronavirus infection rate has decreased dramatically in recent weeks, from 460 new cases on March 28 to just 12 on April 22.
