Support Cancer Research UK at the 2011 Plug and Play Festival
Introducing a unique charity event
Monday 13 June 2011
Welcome to a new kind of charity event.
Plug and Play is a non-profit organisation set up by a collective of successful media professionals focused on delivering a unique annual charitable event.
This year’s inaugural event is being held this weekend - 18 and 19 June - in aid of Cancer Research UK. It's on at the Westbourne Studios in West London's Portobello area. Doors are open on Saturday between 12pm and 4am, and 12pm and 12am on Sunday.
Expect the weekend to be full of the UK's biggest established DJs and artists, as well as many more up-and-coming musicians, all in aid of giving. Performers includ Norman Jay (MBE), DJ Krust (Full Cycle), Phil Asher, the Sugasmak, DJ Excallibah, The Modernists, Kasai Masai, Segunda Geracao, Michelle Escoffery and many many more.
It costs £12 on the door, or £5 through limited advance donation. To book, click here.
Plug and Play’s festival director Billy Reid says: "it was started with the idea of 'why wait to give?' Why don't we have a yearly event set up just for giving? I wanted to gather people from the music industry, independent and signed artists alike, in order to raise money for a worthwhile cause. Cancer Research was the first charity that came to my mind due to the fact that it is one close to my heart having lost my mother. A meeting with Consuela Mckenzie discovered very smilar goals regarding this particular music event we collaborated and plug and play festival as it is was born. Shahla Karkouti Joined the team and it has expanded far beyond our initial expectations. A festival like this creates awareness that we are more powerful when we all come together. We are hoping to make as much money for cancer research as possible.”
Cancer Research is a partner in the event, and is ensuring there will be celebrity speakers in the opening and closing ceremonies.
There will also be live graffiti art/workshops from Chrome & Black, stalls, food and films and festival fun throughout the day. What's more, ‘ Bay Sixty6’ will be taking donations on the day and all people with a Plug and Play ticket donation can use the skate park for free. And if you can't make it and want to give anyway, click the justgiving link here.
The weekend will be a London festival filled atmosphere with the essence of giving, amazing music and people. We look forward to having you there to join in the experience and to help us raise money for Cancer Research UK.
