The Kooks, Mr Hudson to play tribute gig for Ou Est Le Swimming Pool frontman Charles Haddon
The Kooks, Mr Hudson and Daisy Dares You are among the acts set to play a tribute gig for Ou Est Le Swimming Pool frontman Charles Haddon, who died last month.

The acts will all play Chazzstock at London's KOKO on October 4, a day after Ou Est Le Swimming Pool's album 'The Golden Year' is released.

The singer died shortly after the band's performance at Pukkelpop festival on August 20 after falling from a tower backstage at the event.

Chazzstock, which is being organised by Haddon's bandmates and family, will see each act perform a cover from 'The Golden Year', alongside a short set of their own material. The gig will also raise money for mental health charity Mind.

The following acts so far confirmed to play Chazzstock are:

The Kooks
Mr Hudson
Eddy Temple Morris
Kissy Sell Out
Man Like Me
Nat Jenkins
Daisy Dares You
Ollie Wride
