The terrible plight of refugees hasn’t gone unnoticed over the past year or so, and today a special event has been announced by the music industry seeking to help not only build awareness of the millions of people displaced worldwide, but also raise money to ensure many of these survive the upcoming winter months.
Revealed moments ago, Faithless, Sigma, Eats Everything, Chase and Status, Skream, Sky FX and more have come together for ‘Rave For Refugees’, a nationwide initiative encouraging people to host their own nights to raise money to help refugees.
Set to cover two dates at London’s Electric Brixton, Faithless will kick precedings off, alongside Skream, Eats Everything, Daphni and Jon Hopkins on 8th December. Meanwhile Chase & Status, Rudimental, Sigma and Shy FX will hit the stage one week later on Thursday 15th December. Further acts are also expected to be announced prior to the shows.
“We are incredibly proud to be supporting the charity Help Refugees in their formidable effort to help the plight of thousands of refugees around the world” said Chase and Status of the cause, adding “Rave For Refugees is an amazing chance for the music industry to come together and support a much needed cause through two amazing club nights.”
Rave For Refugees will also mark the first time many of these acts will perform DJ sets together, so expect the nights to be even more special.
Tickets for the raves are on sale Friday 11th November at 9am with proceeds going to Help Refugees’ CHOOSE LOVE campaign. Head over here for more info.
