2 NIGHTS DEDICATED TO THE RECENT DISASTERS IN THE PACIFIC
On 11th March 2011 the lay of the land was irrevocably altered. Stunned by a series of seismic judders, earthquakes and harrowingly devastating tsunami, costal parts of Southern Japan were thrown into turmoil. Unfortunately it's not the first time this year an area of the Pacific has been affected by tectonic activity, with New Zealand, itself the epicenter of...... a massive quake, falling foul of Mother Nature in February. With the demolition and havoc present, citizens have been kept under perpetual threat from aftershocks and further tremors as newscasts and publications fill their pages with sensationalist images that, at their heart, only begin to hint at the damage caused just a few weeks ago.
For two nights this May, we're presenting Don't Forget - a duo of events dedicated to maintaining awareness and raising money in aid of these recent disasters in the Pacific. Uniting under these exceptional circumstances, the Drum & Bass and Techno communities have each stepped up to fill the three rooms of our venue with some of the biggest lineups you're likely to ever expect to see here in Farringdon. All of the artists involved have waived their fee, and we're excited to host a plethora of names that might not normally fit on our lineups.
All profits - this includes, every penny, all bar profits; everything - from the event will be donated to the following charities:
* RED CROSS DISASTER FUND
* RED DOT RELIEF
* THE JAPAN SOCIET TOHOKU EARTHQUAKE RELEIF FUND
* NEW ZEALAND EMBASSY CHRISTCHURCH EARTHQUAKE APPEAL
