The London-based protest takes place this weekend (July 1)
The protest against a Conservative-DUP government is set to take place on July 1, beginning outside BBC Broadcasting House at 12pm, before marching on to Parliament Square, where Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, Green Party representatives and more will address the crowds. At the time of writing, the Facebook event for the march boasted over 8,000 attendees and 20,000+ ‘interested’. A similar event took place on June 9.
Now, Wolf Alice have been revealed to be joining the protest, with a performance from the ‘My Love Is Cool’ indie group joining the day’s numerous events. In addition, London LGBT+ clubnight and drag group Sink The Pink will host a float at the march. Captain Ska, whose anti-Tory song ‘Liar Liar’ recently reached number four in the UK Official Singles Chart, will also perform.
Last year, Wolf Alice launched Bands4Refugees – an indie supergroup who seek to raise awareness and funds for the ongoing refugee crisis – while earlier this year, NME joined Sink The Pink to learn more about how they’re inspiring a new generation of drag queens.

The London four-piece relocated to Los Angeles earlier this year to make ‘Visions Of A Life’ with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Paramore, Beck, Nine Inch Nails). The record will be released on September 29, via Dirty Hit.
Wolf Alice will also head out on a US tour in July before returning to the stage in Europe and the UK in October. The band will play their biggest headline show to date at London’s Alexandra Palace on November 24.
