Awareness Festival at the Crucible
Mosh Pit events are proud to be partnering with Awareness Festival to bring Newbury a night of live music to raise money for mental health charity Mind. The event will be held at The Crucible in Newbury on Saturday 29 June.
The first act that will be performing is A New Hope, a local band from Newbury. The members from A New Hope said: "We have all experienced depression at some point and we want to help spread the message that it is ok to not be ok."
They will be performing their own songs, some of which touch on the subject of depression.
The second group to be performing on the day is Erica Drive, an Emopunk band from Bournemouth. They are making the journey specifically to perform at the Festival. The members of the band understand the struggle with depression after losing a close friend to depression. The band said that they are excited to be involved and to help raise vital funds for mental health charity, Mind.
The third confirmed act for the night is Sam Lambden, a singer from Newbury who has been performing locally for a few years and is very excited to be performing at June event. They said: "When I was asked to perform at this event I knew that it would be a great opportunity to give something back."
The event has been organised by Mosh Pit events and sponsored by The Freakshow Tattoo shop and The Hare and Hounds. Money raised from ticket sales will go to mental health charity Mind to support their work helping people who struggle with depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. Music First will be providing the lights and sound for the event.
