Friendly Fires, Frank Turner and Billy Bragg are all set to play the one-off ABLE2UK concert for disabled awareness at London's Roundhouse on August 20.

Miles Kane and Steve Craddock will also perform on the night and there will be a DJ set from Zane Lowe as well as an appearance from a 'mystery' band who are yet to be announced.

Money raised at the show will go to help UK music venues improve their facilities for disabled people and will also help to build ABLE2UK viewing areas at UK festivals for those in wheelchairs. The new areas will have bars, "so carers don't need to leave their friends to queue up for refreshments" as well as umbrellas to keep away the rain and sun and hearing loops and binoculars for those who are hard of hearing or have difficulty seeing."

To check the availability of Friendly Fires tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
