Singer encourages fans to protect their skin from sun

Ladyhawke has announced a plan to stage a one-off charity gig for one fan and their friends.

The gig will take place on August 26 in an as-yet unannounced London venue, and will see Bombay Bicycle Club play a support slot.

The singer, aka Pip Brown, will perform for a fan and their chosen guestlist in aid of SunSmart‘s ‘Skindividual’ initiative, which aims to encourage young people to protect their skin from too much UV.

To win a chance of getting tickets to the gig, a specially created networking site, Skindividual.co.uk, has been created which encourages users to grow a gig guestlist via existing profiles on social network sites such as Facebook, MySpace bebo and Twitter.

The entrant who garners the largest guestlist for the show will win entry to the gig with their friends.

“Your skin is a pretty major part of what makes us who we are, so it’s something we should take extra care in protecting – particularly since skin cancer’s a growing problem in the UK,” Ladyhawke said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Ladyhawke is set to perform on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury on June 26.
