Speed, Scowl, Zulu, and more schedule Palestine benefit show in protest of Download Festival sponsor

Scowl and Speed

After exiting from Download Fest yesterday in protest of sponsor Barclay's Bank's involvement in the war in Gaza, Speed, Scowl, Zulu, and Pest Control are set to host a benefit show for Palestine at Centrala in Birmingham. 

The show will take place this Friday, June 14th, with doors opening at 6 PM. 

Joining the lineup are Cauldron, Ikhras, and Transistrrr.

Scowl say:

This Friday! A benefit for Palestine 🇵🇸 

Thank you to everyone who put this together last minute and all the bands playing.

Meanwhile, Split Chain who were added to the festival as a replacement has elected to play the show, while providing their payment as a donation, along with a link for fans to donate.

The band shared:

As individuals and as a collective, Split Chain condemn the ongoing atrocities committed in Gaza and the genocide of the Palestinian people. 

We praise all those who use their voice for those in need, and we wholeheartedly respect and stand with every band, individual and organisation that are using their platforms in any way to further raise awareness of this crisis. 

We will be donating our entire artists fee from Download Festival to Palestine Children's Relief Fund and Medical Aid For Palestinians. 

PCRF provides medical and humanitarian relief collectively and individually to children throughout Gaza.

MAP provides immediate aid to those in need as well as creating a future where Palestinians can access sustainable and locally led systems of healthcare. 

In our bio and stories are links to MAP and PCRF, and ways you can contact your local MP/Representative to use your voices further.
