Oasis guru Alan McGee is launching a new nationwide campaign called Musicians Against Homelessness.
The campaign aims to raise funds for the homeless charity Crisis through a series of gigs across the UK in September & October.
Much like Oxjam, Musicians Against Homelessness gigs will be set up and promoted independently all over the UK with the aim of becoming an annual event and giving opportunities to up-coming bands.
Shows are endorsed by Alan McGee and open to ALL bands and venues who’d like to get involved in their local area. This will also be backed with official press releases for use in the local media.
Gigs will take place over a 2 week period from 18th Sept to 2nd Oct 2016 and will be coordinated by Emma Rule of Lip Up Media, a keen supporter and regular volunteer for Crisis who works with unsigned bands.
