In light of the recent loss of Prodigy’s larger than life frontman Keith Flint and the tragic circumstances surrounding his death, The Cause is holding a UK-wide fundraiser celebrating the life & back catalogue of one of dance music’s most prolific icons.
The Cause – London’s DIY, underground dance space – have raised £5,500 already and will be donating 100% of ticket sales to partner charities The Calm Zone & MIND – both organisations dedicated to improving mental health and preventing suicide.
The tour, curated in collaboration with NLA Artists, will be a UK-wide celebration of the music Keith and The Prodigy inspired. Local heroes will play alongside those who the band shared line-ups with and whose records were played at events during their rise to fame. All artists performing throughout the tour will perform 100% for free.
The aim of the tour is to raise maximum awareness and funds for mental health charities and continue to shed light on, support & advocate mental health issues. Partnering up with venues and local collectives in Manchester, Sheffield, Brighton, Southampton, Leeds, Edinburgh, Sunderland, Glasgow, Southend – the tour still has many other cities in the pipeline.
One in Three people will suffer from some form of mental health issue in their lifetime. If you or someone you know is suffering from poor mental health and want someone to talk to, The Samaritans is a charity that aims to help people suffering emotional distress. They are free to contact 24/7 from any UK or Irish phone by dialling 116 123. Head to samaritans.org for further details.
