Music Venue Trust announces Fightback 2017

Music Venue Trust - Fightback 2017 fundraising campaign

Music Venue Trust (MVT) has launched a major fundraising drive to help secure the future of the charity, including a gig at Camden Electric Ballroom on 17 October.

The charity have partnered up with Pledge Music to launch Fightback 2017 – a six-week campaign which will culminate with the celebratory gig.

‘Fightback 2017 is all about artists and fans, because in the end grassroots music venues are all about artists and fans,’ said MVT CEO Mark Davyd.

‘Fightback 2017 will be working with artists to create something special that fans can own or take part in, with all the proceeds going to support the work of the Emergency Response Team’.

Items up for sale during the fundraising drive include MVT merchandise and special items, a limited-edition shirt specially designed by Frank Turner and a signed Fender Mustang.
