OASIS guru Alan McGee is teaming up with Hereford’s popular Post-Punk band the Linerunners and local music promoters’ The Underground Revolution to bring you a memorable all day Punk Festival. The music mogul started Musicians Against Homelessness earlier this year to raise funds for the homeless charity Crisis.

Musicians Against Homelessness is supported by Happy Mondays legend Shaun Ryder, Irvine Walsh, Cast, the Buzzcocks, Black Grape, The Jesus & Mary Chain and hundreds more bands.

Hereford Music Promoters  The Underground Revolution devote their time to supporting bands and charities with a focus on social awareness, as well as local bands who otherwise would not have an outlet for their music.

They could not turn down the opportunity that was given to them by local band the Linerunners who were looking for a venue to stage this festival. The UR were already doing the festival to raise money for the Big Issue Foundation and felt that both charities would sit side by side beautifully, so they jumped on the idea.

What is ‘A Crisis of Conscience 40 Years of Punk Festival’?

‘A Crisis of Conscience’ is celebrating 40 years of punk attitude, music and most importantly the charitable spirit that is part of the punk ethos. It will also be raising funds to help support one of the nation’s biggest homeless charities, The Big Issue Foundation. It is an honour to work with both charities to bring forth awareness around an epidemic that can affect anyone at anytime.

The festival will include Musicians, Poets, Dj’s, Artists & Street Food, and will be split into a day and evening line-up. Tickets for the evening show are available on the door. Festival goers will be asked to give a donation of their choice during the day, to ensure the event is open and accessible to all.

The day line up is made up of 4 acts, 4 poets, Live art for Silent Auction, Fire Eaters and Killa Tacos will be on the premises selling their delicious brand of fresh and authentic tacos. Because nothing is nicer than tacos and beer!

Then in the evening their will be 5 bands for £5. All profits will be split equally and given to the charities’.

Some Good Folk @ De Koffie Pot

Wednesday 24th of August 2016 at De Koffie Pot, Hereford

ALULA DOWN

I’m glad I managed to get out of the house to hear the three superb acts that kept us enthralled at De Koffie Pot Wednesday night. It was a mesmerising assortment of innovative acts who all expressed a unique slant on the folk genre.  Alula Down played a pleasant and intriguing mix of traditional music and original songs. They began with some technical problems, the mic fading in and out, which was fortunately smoothed out to allow their particular brand of elegant folk music to impress itself upon the receptive ears of the audience.
