Ed Sheeran, Ghetts And More To Perform For Amnesty International And Sofar Sounds Series ‘Give A Home’ | Music News
Amnesty International and Sofar Sounds have put together a concert series called ‘Give a Home’ to raise awareness for the urgent global refugee crisis. The event will take place on September 20 and will bring established and emerging artists together with refugees and local communities at over 300 shows in more than 60 countries around the world. ‘Give A Home’ will be transmitted live by VICE and Facebook Live.
The stellar line up of the concert series includes Ed Sheeran, Ghetts, MoeLogo, Jesse Ware, and Jorja Smith, among others.
The locations will be secret until closer to the day of the gigs. Fans can apply for tickets for the series supporting World Refugee Day here. From the site, people will be able to select their city and the event of their choice to be in with a chance of winning two tickets. They will have the option of making a donation when applying for tickets.
The refugee crisis affects the lives of more than 21 million people worldwide and through this project, the two organizations are trying to shine the light on this problem that concerns all of us.
The line-up announcement was cleared by a statement that explains: “On 20 September, the global music community will come together like never before to celebrate a more hopeful narrative, one that champions and celebrates the fundamental equality and dignity of all human beings.”
Do try to win some tickets for the World Refugee Day initiative and while there, why don’t you donate something for this important cause.
