Josh Pyke has announced details of the 2014 Busking for Change show, his charity event raising money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. The event is set to be held at The Roller Den in Sydney (the old Imperial Hotel in Erskineville) on the 4th September and will feature a guest appearance by the very cool, but very un-Timber and Steel Urthboy.

“I’ve been an ambassador for the ILF for about five-years now,” says Pyke. “The reasons I got involved are the same reasons that I stay involved. I believe Indigenous Australians should have access to the same opportunities that any Australian does, and I believe that having good literacy levels can be a starting point in opening those doors.”

Tickets for the night are $30 and are guaranteed to sell fast. For more information check out the official Busking for Change site here.
