11 Jun Noisey team up with Road to Freedom for Grime Aid concert in response to the crisis in Somalia
If you haven’t got any plans on Thursday 15 June, get down to Grime Aid at Kamio for a packed night of live music from some of the scene’s very best all for a great cause.
Noisey have partnered up with Road to Freedom, an organisation that aims to provide refugees fleeing warn-torn countries with immediate aid, to raise funds for the famine crisis that has swept Somalia.
The World Health Organisation warned that Somalia faces its third famine crisis in 25 years, with more than 6.2 million having little or no access to food, more than half the countries population. A combination of major donors scaling back on donations, major political instability and humanitarian budgets not being large enough to match the level of assessed need, among other factors, means the need for food aid is more crucial than ever.
Hosted by Poet, the showpiece at Kamio on June 15 will see P Money, Donae’o, Big Tobz, Bonkaz and Logan Sama grace the stage, with more names to be added.
Previous Grime Aid events have enabled funds to be raised to provide aid for those fleeing conflict in Africa and the Middle East, with performances from the likes of Chip, 67, Abra Cadabra, Kojey Radical, WSTRN, Cadet. 100% of proceeds go towards supplying aid.
Tickets are very reasonable priced at £10 with all proceeds going towards an important cause, so if you haven’t got plans on Thursday June 15, grab a ticket for Grime Aid here.
