UK - This Saturday night, music fans will be able to dance the night away to over three hours of electronic music streamed online, all whilst helping industry charity Music Support raise vital funding.
Taking place from 9pm on 4 July, Warehouse Manifesto will be held at Production Park’s London rehearsal studio The Mill. The Mill, in association with lighting, audio and video specialists Subfrantic, has created a COVID-secure avenue for artists to generate online content during the crisis. Meanwhile, LiveFrom Events will bring the music to the masses via its HD streaming platform.
Tyrone Brunton, the gig’s project manager, comments: “The idea for Warehouse Manifesto came about after numerous conversations with Bullet from Production Park, as we were trying to get the core crew we have worked with over the years back together, with another project in sight. Since the touring industry as we know it has come to a standstill, it’s left hard-working freelancers and touring suppliers out of work. Our initial aim was to create something positive for us to look forward to, and now thanks to the superb response, support and generosity from The Mill, Subfrantic, LiveFrom Events, our tech crew and DJs, we’d like to extend our efforts further.”
Music Support is a registered charity founded and run by people from the UK music industry for individuals working within the UK music industry, who are affected by mental health issues and/or addiction. Due to the extreme financial impact on the music industry caused by the crisis, many peers are experiencing higher than usual levels of anxiety and depression, as well as issues with alcohol and other substances. To enable the charity to offer to those in need, viewers will be invited to support its ongoing work during the online event.
“We now have an opportunity to raise awareness of the very real struggles taking place within the live music industry," adds Brunton. "People are facing all manner of problems every day and will continue to do so until COVID-19 is eradicated. We think the work that Music Support carries out is vital in helping people adjust to this new reality.”
