[SAVE THE DATE] This December Faithless, Chase & Status, Rudimental, Jon Hopkins, Skream, Daphni, Eats Everything and others will come together to put on a number of very special nights in aid of the ongoing European refugee crisis – ‘Rave For Refugees’.
Rave For Refugees is being hosted by the ‘Help Refugees‘ charity, a charity that was created in 2015 in response to the escalating humanitarian crisis in Calais. Initially it began as a social media campaign started by a group of friends hoping to raise £1,000 and drive a van of donations to Calais. In just one week, they had raised £56,000 and were receiving 7,000 packages of donated goods a day: the public response to the campaign was huge. As a result Help Refugees has now gone onto fund and support 22 different camps across Greece, France, Turkey, Syria and Lebanon.
Tickets for the first two events, December 8th and December 15th, will go on sale tomorrow (Friday 11th November) at 9am. So don’t hang about as we anticipate both raves selling out rapidly. All profit from both parties, after costs, will go directly towards preparing 60,000 refugees for winter, of which there are 24,000 children and 9,000 pregnant women.
Tickets On Sale: 11th November at 9am. £15 each via [Ticketmaster]
