Bear's Den and The Staves will also be playing
Laura Marling, Bear’s Den, Mystery Jets, James Acaster, Stephen Bailey and many more are set to head up a one-day festival of music and comedy at London’s Flat Iron Square to raise money for mental health charity CALM.
Taking place in acclaimed venue Omeara and the chalet-bar Après London in South East London’s Flat Iron Square, music and comedy names will be coming together on December 16.
“As an organisation with roots in the music and comedy communities, we’re delighted to be joining with Omeara and Flat Iron Square to bring together these incredible artists and comedians,” said Simon Gunning, CEO of the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).
“Suicide remains the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK, but events like this enable us to engage an audience in this issue while raising the funds that will allow us to continue supporting men who may be going through a tough time in their lives.”
Tickets will be issued for £5 via ballot from 10am on Wednesday November 7, and will be available here. Check out the full line-up below.
