Earshift Music Fest is part of the new frontier of festivals across the world, adopting new technologies of engaging audiences through a hybrid program. You can watch performances live, watch them live streamed and after the fact, and listen to the label’s recordings on a curated playlist on spotify.

Earshift Music Fest 2020 celebrates the diverse music making of both Australian jazz luminaries and the next generation of artists from the Earshift Music label. This year’s festival features three Earshift Live events at the Old 505 Theatre, Newtown, Sydney, with Avgenicos Brothers ‘Reduction’, Jeremy Rose Quartet and Phil Slater Quintet. These three events will be live streamed via gigstreamlive.

The Earshift Online events include four consecutive Sundays in October, 6:30pm AEST, streamed through Earshift Music’s facebook and youtube channel, and will be available for 28 days. Online concerts include performances from drummer Rajiv Jayaweera (NYC), vocalist Elly Hoyt (London), bassist Marty Holoubek (Tokyo), and bassist Sam Anning/Kristin Berardi (Melb/Bris) & The Rest is Silence (Melb).
