According to R3, Róisín Murphy has cancelled her plan to perform in St Petersburg so that she can play this fundraiser instead.
All proceeds made will be donated to the event partners Bündnis Entwicklung Hilft (Alliance for Development Help), Fulcrum UA and All Out, “to provide humanitarian help on the ground, and support people in Ukraine and refugees in the neighbouring countries that they are fleeing to.”

R3 Soundsystem has said: “We have seen overwhelming support from so many artists that are watching in horror as events unfold, and are proud to be standing shoulder to shoulder with them in solidarity with Ukraine.”
Gideön, DJ and Founder of R3 Soundsystem says: “To see Putin crush the wonderful city of Kyiv and destroy the incredible cultural explosion was underway breaks my heart and makes my blood boil in equal measure. Music is our weapon and R3 Soundsystem will continue to use it as a force for both international solidarity and political change”
Tickets to the fundraiser are available here.
