Fundraiser for Gig Buddies Cymru

Ft. Stewart Lee, Mclusky, Willie J Healey, Seann Walsh, TV Priest + more!

IDLES bassist Adam ‘Dev’ Devonshire has organised an online event streamed live from Exchange in Bristol in aid of the charity Gig Buddies. With stand-up comedy from Stewart Lee, Seann Walsh and Josh Weller and music from mclusky, Willie J Healey, TV Priest, Fenne Lily, Dogeyed and Wilderman.

There will also be an online raffle, the current list of prizes is below, and we will have even more prizes to announce soon!

Information on Gig Buddies:

Gig Buddies matches adults with learning disabilities (and/or autism) with a volunteer who shares the same interests so they can attend gigs and events together.

The Gig Buddies scheme was founded in Brighton by the charity Stay Up Late in 2012 and has since spread to 11 other chapters across the UK, plus one in Sydney, Australia.

Dev had the following to say about the cause:

"After witnessing first hand what vital and wonderful work Gig Buddies do, It has been an honour and a privilege for me to be working with them and to help raise awareness of the wonderful service that they provide. Music and live events provide us all with so much happiness and catharsis, everyone deserves to have that joy in their lives. As we're all hopefully getting back to a place where live events will be happening again, now is a great time to raise awareness for the charity."

The event will be streamed from Exchange in Bristol on Sunday June 20th. Tickets are available to purchase now for a suggested donation of £5 with an additional option to enter the raffle.
