The festival, titled ‘Square Garden’, will go ahead on April 24 from 11pm BST and can be accessed via the band’s official website. There, fans can find a list of instructions on how to access the show. The festival is supporting US hunger relief charity Feeding America by encouraging donations.

100 gecs released their debut album ‘1000 gecs’ in July last year. Recently, they’ve been releasing remixes of cuts from the album, including a new version of ‘Ringtone’ featuring Rico Nasty and fellow ‘Square Garden’ acts Charli XCX and Kero Kero Bonito.

Co-headliner Charli XCX has been keeping herself busy and her fans fed during this period of isolation. Following the announcement that she’ll be spending the next month working on her new album ‘how i’m feeling now’, which is out May 15, she released its lead single ‘forever’.

She is involving fans in the album’s process in a big way, having sent out an invite for fans to be a part of the music video for ‘forever’. Additionally, she released the song’s stems so her fans can remix it.
