The line-up for Saturday’s (July 16) LONDON UNITED festival has started to be confirmed.

The free concert is being held in Burgess Park, south London to remember those who were killed in last week’s bombings (July 7).

Organised by the Mayor Of London Ken Livingstone, the following acts have confirmed they will be playing:

Billy Bragg

Kano

Lemar

The Mitchell Brothers

Raghav

Terri Walker

Goldie Lookin Chain

Suggs

Heather Small

More acts are expected to be added before the weekend. Introducing the line-up Mayor Livingstone said: “The bombings that took place last week indiscriminately attacked Londoners irrespective of race, culture, religion or age. London is the future. This free gig will show that London stands firm and celebrates its status as a city of all races, faiths and cultures, the very thing the bombers hate.”

London United replaces the previously announced RISE anti-racism festival, and runs from 12 noon to 8.30pm.
