LIVE FOR BEIRUT hopes to raise much needed funds for the people of Beirut. 100% of all ticket revenue will be donated to Lebanon Red Cross who distribute disaster relief directly to where it’s needed most.
On 4th August 2020, a massive explosion rocked the city of Beirut claiming the lives of at least 200 people. A further 6,500 people were injured and millions of dollars worth of damage left 300,000 people homeless. But the true cost of the explosion is still untold.
The people of Beirut are in desperate need of our help. Before the blast and the COVID pandemic, Lebanon found itself on the brink of one of the worst economic crises of our age. The situation could not be more critical.
In response to this the LIVE FOR BEIRUT project was created by Ciara Haidar, a musician of Lebanese descent who has brought some of London’s finest musicians together for a very special night of live music in aid of this truly worthy cause. You can also experience one-off performances from the likes of The Coral co-founder Bill Ryder Jones, ex-Maccabees frontman Orlando Weeks and DJ Nabihah Iqbal, plus more to be announced in the build up to the show.
