Jake Bugg to headline Crisis charity concert in London this December
AlunaGeorge will also play the one-off show at the Eventim Apollo on December 20
Bugg and Bastille will be joined by Alunageorge and special guests on December 20 at the venue in Hammersmith, west London. Proceeds from the gig will go towards the Crisis at Christmas project and its year-round services across the UK helping homeless people.
Speaking about the gig, which will also see performances by performers that take part in Crisis' music classes, the charty's chief executive Leslie Morphy said: "We have some of the best British musical talent lined up for this year’s Crisis Presents and would like to thank all the artists, including our own from Crisis, for making it happen. At a time of rising homelessness, events like this are so important, so please support us by buying your tickets today – not only will this be a great evening but you will be helping us end homelessness."
Artists who have played previous Christmas gigs for Crisis include Paul Weller, Emeli Sandé, Tim Minchin, Miles Kane and Graham Coxon.
Tickets for the gig are on sale now.
