Five4Five Fest raises money for NHS and stars Enter Shikari and Don Broco

Concerts and festivals are cancelled for the near future. But we aren’t without live music as bands are taking to their webcams for isolation livestreams. Five4Five Fest is an online festival raising money for the NHS.

Five4Five Fest is being held online on May 15 and 16 and will feature Enter Shikari and Don Broco as they raise money for NHS Charities Together.

Five bands will play each day of the festival which will take place on the 15th and 16th of May, a total of ten performances over the course of the weekend.  A mixture of full band, solo/duo and completely reimagined performances will be streamed via the Five4FiveFacebook page from 7:30pm each evening.  The show will be public and completely free and those attending will be encouraged to donate £5 via a link provided at the time.  All profits will be donated to the NHS Charities Together.

Other incentives to donate such as signed drumsticks/skins and picks, artwork and merch will also be available.  This, along with the remaining eight artists who will complete the line-up and other exciting aspects will be announced soon.

Five4Five Fest is born as fans and bands alike are facing a summer without festivals.  Given the immense strain the Covid-19 pandemic has placed on our NHS and the personal sacrifices and efforts being made by NHS staff, bands and music industry professionals have come together to pool collective strengths with the aim of raising money.
