NOISEY PRESENTS : #GRIMEAID17 defeating the stigma of grime music

Grime Aid is back and this time, in response to the famine and terror threat in Somalia, Road To Freedom has teamed up with Noisey to curate another Grime showcase to raise funds to purchase aid, that will be handed directly to the Somalian refugees around Europe. Grime Aid will take place on the 15th June at Kamio, 1-3 Rivington St, EC2DA 3DT. Artists scheduled to perform on the night include, P Money, Donae’o, Logan Sama, Big Tobz and Bonkaz.

Over the past two years, the Road To Freedom team have been travelling to refugee camps all over Europe delivering aid (medicine, hygiene products, food and clothing) to men, women and children fleeing conflict in Africa and the Middle East.

With the support of artists including CHIP, WSTRN, Cadet, Abra Cadabra, Kojey Radical, President T, Jammer, Jammin, Shystie, 67, The HeavyTrackerz and more, who have performed at the previous fundraisers, Ra’ed Khan and his team have been able to utilise 100% of the proceeds on past trips to distribute aid where it’s needed the most.

“I am blessed to be able to work in such a great industry where the response has been overwhelming, everyone coming together to give up their time, resources and funds to help the plight of the refugees.” – Ra’ed Khan

This year, hosted by Poet, Grime Aid returns with an equally impressive line-up, showcasing some of the UK’s most promising up and coming talent, as well as some of the grime scene’s pioneers.

Tickets can be purchased through Dice.
