Following the successful fundraising campaigns for Elbow, Everything Everything, Public Service Broadcasting, The Slow Readers Club and Ash, we’re excited to announce the next lineup for Passport: Back to Our Roots, the campaign to raise money for independent grassroots music venues at risk of closure due to the COVID-19 crisis:
Pet Shop Boys // Electric Ballroom // Camden
Jamie xx // Corsica Studios // London
Metronomy // Patterns // Brighton
KT Tunstall // Brixton Windmill + PJ Molloys // Brixton + Fife
Passenger // Komedia // Brighton
Russell Watson // The Stoller Hall // Manchester
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 is open now and the entry deadline has been extended to 10am Monday 26th October. 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 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).
