Amnesty International has joined forces with living room gig experts Sofar Sounds for a string of events next month. The charity series will see over 300 intimate gigs performed across the globe on Wednesday 20th September, with shows in more than 200 countries – all in people’s homes of course, true to the Sofar Sounds ethos.
The #GiveAHome events come as an effort to increase awareness of the ongoing refugee crisis and as a sign of solidarity with those impacted, with donations from the shows going towards helping people most in need. If you need any more convincing, consider the star-studded artists confirmed, with Jessie Ware, Hot Chip, Rudimental, Kwabs and Gregory Porter playing nights across London alone. Those performing in other cities include Hozier in Dublin, and Laura Mvula, Moby and BØRNS in LA, to name but a few.
With the opportunity to both help those most in need and experience one of Sofar Sounds’ consistently high quality showcases, the question is: what are you waiting for?
