Grime MCs Come Together For Grenfell Benefit Concert
20 July 2017, 15:20
JME, Ghetts, Big Narstie and more are performing at the show in July to raise money for those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
On July 29 the MCs, DJs and singers will perform at the Eventim Apollo (the old Hammersmith Apollo), with all of the ticket proceeds going to help victims of the tragic fire.
The money will be donated to the London Community Foundation, which is working directly with those affected. The foundation provides emergency funding and grants to families from Grenfell and organisations working with them
The fire in the Grenfell Tower in North Kensington on June 14 killed 80 people dead and left hundreds homeless.
So far BBK’s JME, Ghetts, Big Narstie, Wretch 32, Shakka, Wstrn, Capital XTRA’s Manny Norte and Angel, who proposed the event in the first place, are confirmed for the concert, with more acts to be announced and a promise of ‘very special guests’ attending on the night.
RnB artist Angel got the ball rolling on the show when he started a social media campaign to help the victims in the wake of the victim.
It was initially to be held at a small 300 person venue, but the response to Angel’s call saw it move to the 5,000 seater Apollo.
