The money will go to the Scottish Association for Mental Health in Scott's memory
The festival was an one day event held on June 1 at Galvanizers Yard in the city with performances from Hookworms, Dama Scout and Be Charlotte. It is now been cancelled according to a tweet from Scott’s brother and bandmate Grant Hutchison via the band’s Twitter account.
The tweet reads: “We’ve made the decision to cancel The First Incident on June 1st. Some people have said that they’d like to donate their ticket cost to charity.”
The charity the band have asked fans to donate to is the Scottish Association For Mental Health which is the largest charity to provide mental health support and services in Scotland. You can learn more about SAMH here. Check out the tweet from Frightened Rabbit below:
Hutchison was found dead on Thursday evening (May 10), with his family confirming the news on Friday, May 11.
The 36-year-old Frightened Rabbit frontman was initially reported missing in the early hours of the Thursday morning.
