Mustafa announces the line-up for London edition of Artists For Aid

The benefit concert, which will feature performances from Bint Mbareh, Blood Orange, Clairo and more, takes place on 4 July at Troxy.

The second edition of Artists For Aid will take place next Thursday at London’s Troxy from 7-11pm. Held in collaboration with War Child UK, proceeds from the event will be donated towards the charity’s response plan in Gaza and Sudan.

Alongside Mustafa, the line-up features Bint Mbareh, Blood Orange, Clairo, Daniel Caesar, Earl Sweatshirt, King Krule, Nicolás Jaar, Ramy Youssef, Safia Elhillo and Yasiin Bey, as well as currently unannounced special guests.

“London! Sudan is calling. Gaza is calling. Every artist here is a hero of empathy, thank you for answering our call,” Mustafa, the Sudanese-Canadian artist formerly known as Mustafa the Poet, wrote on Instagram. “There is a war, strike a chord, cry an answer.”

This edition follows the first Artists For Aid fundraiser, which took place in January in New Jersey with Clairo, Omar Apollo, Stormzy, 070 Shake and more.

Tickets are on sale on Dice and Artists For Aid from 5pm today.
