Wolf Alice will headline two benefit shows for the Help Refugees charity next month, which will see them joined by members of Years And Years, Dream Wife, Alt-J, Black Honey, Slaves, The Magic Gang, Spectator, Bloody Knees, Swim Deep, Peace and Superfood to perform a set of covers.

Titling the shows Bands4Refugees, the gigs sit alongside the previously announced Rave For Refugees nights, which also take place in December. And a special 14+ show with a 3pm start, added due to demand, will kick things off this Sunday.

“We wanted to bring together musicians to stand in solidarity with refugees and to raise money for Help Refugees during their winter campaign Choose Love”, says Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell. “Inspired by seeing Peace and Superfood collaborate in a one-off show of covers, we thought it would be so fun to do the same with some of our favourite musicians”.

The shows will take place at Kamio in Shoreditch on 4-5 Dec. More info here.
