Mystery Jets, Miles Kane and Pulled Apart By Horses will all perform at London's Roundhouse in late August as part of a charity fundraiser.

The gig, which is named as the 'ABLE2UK Concert for Disabled Awareness', takes place on August 29 in the Camden venue and also features Ocean Colour Scene guitarist Steve Craddock on the bill.

The show is being staged by Howard Thorpe, who said of his reasons for putting on the show: "Having cerebral palsy myself, it saddens me that to date I can not name any live music event dedicated to disability. Disabled people still face discrimination albeit offending remarks in public or, even worse, those who do not understand the vast achievements most disabled people are capable of."

He continued: "There is also a lack of accessible requirements at many live music events. Funding from the ABLE2UK concert will go towards improving the facilities to improve disabled access, not only for wheelchair users, but for the deaf, blind and those with co-ordination barriers."

All proceeds for the gig will go to the ABLE2UK, which works to help replace the standard disabled viewing platforms at UK festivals for those in wheelchairs and help out those who require special seating arrangements and hearing loops.

Tickets for the show will cost £30 and are available from various outlets. For more information about the show, visit
