We’re super excited to announce Elbow, Everything Everything, Public Service Broadcasting, The Slow Readers Club and Ash are the first bands to announce gigs for Passport: Back to Our Roots, the new campaign to raise money for independent grassroots music venues at risk of closure due to the COVID-19 crisis.
These very special one-off intimate gigs will take place on dates to be confirmed, when it’s safe to perform with no social distancing. But, by entering the prize daw you’re helping raise money for the independent venues who need the money right now.
Entry to these shows is via prize draw. The Crowdfunder campaign opened at 10am Monday 17th August and will run for two weeks. For a £5 minimum donation to the campaign, you’ll be entered into the draw to win entry to the show of your choice for yourself and a friend. So set your alarms!
We’ll be announcing more shows across the country. The next ‘block’ of gigs will be announced when the two week campaign for these shows closes.
Passport: Back to Our Roots is produced by registered charity and independent grassroots venue Band on the Wall, the Music Venue Trust and Stephen Budd Music (creator of War Child’s Passport: Back to the Bars & Passport: To BRITs Week series).
