Stars Sign Up To Play Anti-Racism Festival
Ex-BLUR guitarist GRAHAM COXON and THE BUZZCOCKS are among the artists who will perform at the UK's biggest anti-racism festival in London's Finsbury Park on 8 July (06). The free event, organised by London Mayor KEN LIVINGSTONE in association with the National Assembly Against Racism and TUC South East Region, will also feature bands such as THE WAILERS, SWAY and ROY AYERS. Music and dance from a number of different countries and cultures will be showcased at Rise: London United in the spirit of celebrating diversity. Livingstone says, "Racism is a dead end and music is one of the most powerful ways of demonstrating that fact. "The Rise: London United will bring together people from every background to celebrate the diversity of the capital. This incredibly strong and broad line-up of artists will make a great free day out for all with a strong message that our city loves its diversity."
