Camp Cope books a second farewell show after the first sells out 

Camp Cope
words by kaya martin

The Melbourne emo trio has announced its breakup and we’re still not over it. 

Last week, Camp Cope took to social media for a brief goodbye. “This is a special one – our LAST EVER Naarm/Melbourne show” they wrote in an Instagram post, “can’t think of a more fitting farewell”. The comment section was littered with crying faces and heart emojis. 

They were talking about the show booked for the Brunswick Music Festival, happening at the Estonian House on March 11. After the tragic announcement, the show sold out in rapid speed. Now, the band has now added a second event earlier that day to give them a chance to say goodbye to everyone.

Camp Cope goodbye shows

  • The band’s final shows will take place on March 11 at the Estonian House
  • 4pm-7pm – All-ages show, tickets available now
  • 7:30pm – 18+ show, SOLD OUT

Scheduled for 4pm at the same venue, the afternoon show will will be AUSLAN-interpreted and all-ages, giving a wider range of fans the ability to pay their respects. Just like the night show, it will be supported by Malyangapa Barkindji rapper BARKAA.

The band, which has been around since 2015, is made up of vocalist Georgia Maq, bassist Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich and drummer Sarah “Thomo” Thompson. Labeled in their bio as a “power emo throuple”, the group sprung to success in 2016 with the release of their self-titled record and is now distributed in North America by the legendary indie press Run For Covers Records. 

Through the years, they have played festival stages throughout Australia, led activist campaigns in support of feminism, and performed alongside international alt favourites like Modern Baseball, Andrew Jackson Jihad and Against Me!

They will be sorely missed. 

Camp Cope will play two shows on March 11 at the Estonian House. To get your hands on some of the last-ever tickets, head here
