Join us for a one-off opportunity to see Midnight Oil awarded the Sydney Peace Foundation’s Gold Medal for Human Rights and to hear them speak about their journey fighting for climate justice through their music, career and activism.

Peter Garrett, Martin Rotsey, Jim Moginie and Rob Hirst will join Stan Grant in an exclusive live-streamed event to receive the Award.

They will be joined by 2-time ARIA award winner and chart topper Jessica Mauboy, performing a specially prepared live tribute. Lord Mayor Clover Moore, a longtime patron of the Sydney Peace Foundation, will be live in the studio to award a Gold Medal to each band member.

This event will shine a spotlight on Midnight Oil’s ongoing impact as human rights trailblazers in Australia. From the northern beaches of Sydney to the streets of Manhattan, they have stopped traffic, inflamed passions, inspired fans, challenged the concepts of “business as usual” and broken new ground.

This is a unique opportunity for you to put a question directly to the band via our special Q&A portal.

You can also go in the draw to win a priceless piece of Midnight Oil memorabilia. We have a signed Armstice Day, Live at the Domain vinyl record (worth $100 unsigned), available for the lucky winner of our raffle. You can purchase as many tickets as you want when you purchase your tickets to the event, and then right up until half an hour before we draw it on the night.

This is an exclusive event: it will not be released for viewing at a later time. So don't miss this exciting opportunity to attend this one-off digital event featuring classic Australian artists, Midnight Oil and Jessica Mauboy, and award-winning journalist Stan Grant

You'll be assisting the Sydney Peace Foundation to continue our work spotlighting global peace heroes who show that peace with justice is possible.
