Central Victorian musicians will perform as part of a national music festival presented through Instagram.
Four Lions duo Shann Lions and Keith MacQueen, singer songwriter Mariah McCarthy and a special performance from troubadour Archer will perform as part of Isol-Aid this weekend. More artists will be announced on Friday.
The live streams will see musicians perform a 20 minute set on their Instagram accounts. The Bendigo part will run over two hours from 3pm on Sunday.
Isol-Aid festival director Emily Ulman said cancelled tours and closed venues meant the music industry was missing out.
"We have fostered a sense of togetherness and community for musicians and audiences and we are so pleased to see musicians from Bendigo and central Victoria come onboard," she said.
Bendigo Venues & Events manager David Lloyd said BVE produced online content to support local performers and the community was important.
"Isol-Aid is a great opportunity to further support musicians and audiences and present some of the wonderful contemporary music talent we have here in Bendigo, to a global audience," he said.
