On 4th August 2020, a massive explosion rocked the city of Beirut claiming the lives of at least 200 people. A further 6,500 people were injured and millions of dollars worth of damage left 300,000 people homeless. But the true cost of the explosion is still untold.
In response to this, the LIVE FOR BEIRUT project was created by Ciara Haidar, a musician of Lebanese descent who brought some of London’s finest musicians together for a very special night of live music here at Jazz Cafe back in September. Following the success of the night and the fact that aid is still very much needed, she presents LIVE FOR BEIRUT 2.0. Expect intimate one-off performances from Graham Coxon, Mystery Jets, Rose Elinor Dougall, Bessie Turner, and Ciara Haidar. Plus special DJ sets from Nadine Shah, Django Django, and Lau.ra.
LIVE FOR BEIRUT hopes to raise much-needed funds for the people of Beirut. 100% of all ticket revenue will be donated to Lebanon Red Cross who distribute disaster relief directly to where it’s needed most.
This event is strictly 18+ with ID required on arrival at the venue.
