A massive global concert series will see 1000 artists perform over 300 shows in more than 60 countries all on the same day - today!

The event, designed to show solidarity with refugees, will see Ruth Theodore, The Diamond Age, Band Of Skulls and Daniel Eagle all performing a special show in Southampton at an undisclosed venue.

Artists such as Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande, Rudimental, Jessie Ware, Laura Mvula and JP Cooper will be performing intimate gigs across the globe, raising money to help tackle the global refugee crisis, which affects the lives of more than 21 million people worldwide.

Music fans around the world will be opening up their homes – the locations of which will be secret until closer to the event – to host the concerts. Each event will feature performances from two to three music artists, as well as talks from activists to highlight the solutions people are working on to address the refugee crisis.
