Love Music Hate Racism

In the run up to the March Against Racism demonstrations, music-oriented anti-racism charity Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) has announced its Rebel Music Tour 2022. The event will take place on 17 March, and will feature emerging artists in cities across the UK as part of a new partnership/donation from fashion company ASOS. 

LMHR say: 

"The events aim to give a platform to aspiring musicians at a time of huge difficulties for artists looking to find paid live music events. Love Music Hate Racism has always sought to use music as a platform to bring people together against bigotry and hatred".
