Joel Birch, vocalist of Brisbane’s The Amity Affliction, stopped mid way through the second song of their set at the Download Festival in Melbourne yesterday.
On stage, Birch stopped singing when he witnessed a fan about twenty rows from the front, collapse. He called out to the crowd, who promptly parted, giving access to security and paramedics. After he was positive the fan was being treated, Birch and the band continued with the show.
Birch’s action showed caring and compassion – something so often seen in his comments and writings. He is extremely vocal on social issues and mental health, using music to explore his own struggles with depression and anxiety.
