Jamie xx and Metronomy are taking part in a new grassroots gig series.
The event – dubbed ‘Passport: Back to Our Roots’ – aims to raise money for small venues at risk of closure, with Pet Shop Boys, KT Tunstall, Russell Watson and Passenger also taking part.
“It’s absolutely crucial that we stop as many small venues from closing as possible!” Says Joe Mount from Metronomy.
Entry to the shows – which will be happening “as soon as real shows can happen safely” – will be via a prize draw which will run for three weeks from Monday 14th September until Monday 5th October via crowdfunder.co.uk.
