Global music festival kicks off next week to raise money for the homeless

A new global music festival kicks off in the UK next month, raising money for homeless charity Beats For Beds. The tour will then weave its way to Australia, Canada, and the US. A host of other European countries are scheduled to take place along the way. 

The debut performance of Shelter Me will take place in Manchester on Friday, December 1. The performance will be headed up by Macclesfield’s Mr. Scruff and NTS resident Ruf Dug who pair up as ScruffDug for a special one-off b2b set. 

The follow-up event will see French-born producer Dombrance, alongside Justin Robertson and more, for a late-night special running until 6 AM in London’s Werkhaus. This will take place just one night after the Manchester road trip. 

“As a society, we should make sure we look after the most unfortunate. It’s wrong to have billionaires blasting into space for kicks, yet there are an estimated 150 million people without a home globally,” said the founder of Beats For Beds, Edward Tomlinson. 

“We have some incredible DJs all committed to the cause and are giving their time for FREE – entry price is effectively a donation to charity, not a ticket cost,” he continued. 

On Sunday, December 19, the roadshow heads back up North to Leeds, where A Certain Ratio Soundsystem will headline Belgrave Music Hall until 00:00. 

The global festival then travels to Melbourne, Scotland, and Amsterdam, before heading across the pond to the US and Canada’s British Columbia. 

The individual shows will be live-streamed, via Mixcloud.
