Peckham Levels is hosting two fundraisers for Afghanistan this Friday, September 3, featuring some of the UK’s best up-and-coming and established electronic artists.
All proceeds from the live events will be donated to Afghanaid and help pay for urgent, life-saving assistance for men, women and children caught up in the conflict whether through emergency shelter, food parcels, blankets, towels, solar lights or hygiene products.
The fundraisers are organised by #LIVEFORLOVE, a campaign set up during lockdown in March 2020, initially streaming music to raise funds for food banks. So far the campaign has raised over £46,000 to date for the Trussell Trust.
“#LIVEFORLOVE was founded when our industry was completely put on hold during the first lockdown of 2020,” said co-founder William Wallace.
“It was built on the belief that it was important to still bring people together, reconnect through music and support the most vulnerable in our society at the same time.
“We’ve grabbed an opportunity to try and support those in need in Afghanistan and hope that by hosting these two events we will be able to contribute to making a difference.”
Held on Friday, September 3, the fundraiser is split into two sessions.
The first includes a series of talks and live music in the early evening at Coffee & Cocktails in Peckham Levels, from 6.30pm.
Speakers including Safe Passages CEO Beth Gardiner-Smith, and Shukrullah Ludin, the director of Labour Friends of Afghanistan.
Later, the main event will kick off with a club night at Peckham Audio from 11pm to 3am featuring Shy One b2b Secret Sundaze, LUXE b2b Adam Pits and Mi-El b2b DJ Winggold.
