Hard-Fi open acoustically at Love Music Hate Racism carnival

Richard Archer and co. play free gig in London

Hard-Fi played an acoustic afternoon set at the Love Music Hate Racism carnival in London‘s Victoria Park today (April 27).

The carnival was free to attend, with organisers attempting to unite people to rise against the British National Party in the forthcoming London assembly elections on May 1.

Taking the stage at around 2:15pm (BST), frontman Richard Archer opened the set alone, playing acoustic guitar and singing ‘I Shall Overcome’. Archer was wearing a bright yellow T-shirt with the Love Music Hate Racism slogan prominently printed on it.


Archer, who told NME.COM recently that Love Music Hate Racism was a cause very close to his heart, was joined by his bandmates for a crowd-pleasing set including previous hits ‘Cash Machine’, ‘Suburban Knights’ and ‘Living For The Weekend’.

Hard-Fi played:

‘I Shall Overcome’

‘Hard To Beat’

‘Tied Up Too Tight’



‘Suburban Knights’

‘Cash Machine’

‘We Need Love’

‘Living For The Weekend’
