“The past, present and future of the UK music industry relies on grassroots, independent music venues. We at Five4Five can’t stand by and watch as our venues are left to weather the Covid-19 crisis on their own. We’re proud to partner up with the Music Venue Trust to help ensure they can reopen safely, so we can go back to the loud and sweaty spaces where it all begins. 'Til then, we’ve gathered some of the finest acts to enjoy from the comfort of your own sofa. The show is free, but for a £5 raffle ticket, you have the chance of winning tonnes of exclusive prizes, or you can buy some festival merch.
Grab a brew, enjoy the show, donate if you can, and hopefully we'll all be back in music venues soon.”
- Tom Pullen, Five4Five Fest
"Since March, Music Venue Trust has been fighting to ensure we reopen every grassroots music venue safely. Through a huge effort by artists, audiences and communities, many of our vital iconic venues are now safe, but there's still more work to do with some venues at real risk of permanently closing before the crisis ends.”
- Mark Davyd, Music Venue Trust
Tony Arthy, Vans
"Vans has always supported new music and new bands - without grassroots venues for these new acts to break out from there won't be as much great music coming out of the UK in the future which is why we're back working with Five4Five again but this time for the Music Venue Trust Save Our Venues campaign."
John Longbottom, Signature Brew
"Signature Brew are proud to be partnering with our friends at Five4Five once again. The debut festival was a triumph but, unfortunately, there is still much work to be done. The fight to save the UK's grassroots music venues has never been so urgent and Signature Brew are willing to do whatever it takes to help safeguard both the venues and the people that make them so essential. The Music Venue Trust is a cause close to the brewery's heart, so we can't wait to have a beer and watch Five4Five round two while raising some much needed funding and helping to save the future of live music."
