Bands4Refugees expands

Alternative rock band Wolf Alice have announced they will play a second Bands4Refugees show, especially for attendees aged 14 or older.

Charity music event Bands4Refugees, a partnership between Wolf Alice and Help Refugees, will take place on 4-5 December at Kamio in Shoreditch.

The event will feature an all star musical line up including members from Years and Years, Dream Wife, alt-J, Black Honey, Slaves, The Magic Gang, Spectator, Bloody Knees, Swim Deep, Peace and Superfood coming together across the two nights in a supergroup mash up.

The newly announced second show will take place on the afternoon of 4 December at Kamio, starting at 3pm. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (29 November).

Ellie from Wolf Alice commented: “We wanted to bring together musicians to stand in solidarity with refugees and to raise money for Help Refugees during their winter campaign CHOOSE LOVE. Inspired be seeing peace and superfood collaborate in a one-off show of covers, we thought it would be so fun to do the same with some of our favourite musicians.”

Bands4Refugees is part of grass roots organisation Help Refugees CHOOSE LOVE winter appeal, which sees Britain’s biggest and best musicians coming together for a series of one-off events to raise much-needed funds and help create awareness of the plight of the refugees especially to help the 9,000 pregnant women and 24,000 children currently struggling to survive in refugee camps in Greece.
