FAIR PLAY, MS DYNAMITE

The Mercury Award winner heads for the Astoria to do her bit for Oxfam...

Ms Dynamite is the first name announced for a special charity concert in aid of OXFAM, NME.COM can reveal.

‘Fair Play’ takes place at the London Astoria on October 29. Organised by Emily Eavis, the daughter of Glastonbury founder Michael, proceeds from the gig will be donated to Oxfam, helping to raise the profile of their Make Trade Fair campaign.

Also on the bill are Lamb, and the event will be hosted by DJ Zane Lowe. More acts will be announced in the coming weeks.

Speaking to NME.COM today (October 2), Eavis explained her role. She said: “The original idea was conceived when I was in Africa with Chris Martin. It was so shocking. It makes you feel you have to do something. We hope to raise money for the Oxfam campaign.”

Tickets for the event go on sale on Monday at 10am via www.maketradefair.com, and a special ticketline, 0207 3440044.
