Musicians Against Homelessness welcomes bands & artists to get involved!

News: 23rd March 2016 by Louise Dodgson under Live

Oasis guru Alan McGee is launching a new nationwide campaign called Musicians Against Homelessness.

Its twin aims are to raise funds for the homeless charity Crisis and provide gig opportunities for up-and-coming bands. Musicians Against Homelessness gigs will be set up and promoted independently all over the UK with the aim of becoming an annual event.

The shows are endorsed by Alan McGee and will be open to ALL bands and venues who’d like to get involved in their local area. All gigs will be backed with official press releases for use in the local media.

Gigs will take place over a 2 week period from 18th September to 2nd October 2016 and will be co-ordinated by Emma Rule of Lip Up Media, a keen supporter and regular volunteer for Crisis who works with unsigned bands.

At this time, Musicians Against Homelessness would especially like to hear from people interested in managing an event for them. Event managers will be responsible for choosing their own line-up or if preferred we can match bands with you from our applications.

Events, bands and final line-ups will be promoted and announced through our social media sites; this should prove to be an invaluable networking opportunity for managers, venues and bands. All proceeds go directly to Crisis.

To apply to play, manage or host an event in your local area please email [email protected] or your area manager. Check the pinned post on Facebook page below to find contact details of the area manager relevant to you.
