Feist donating merch proceeds from Arcade Fire show to Women's Aid Dublin

31 August 2022, 10:28 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Last night (30 August) Feist opened for Arcade Fire at their first show since sexual misconduct allegations were made against lead singer Win Butler, and a sign at Feist's merch stand revealed all proceeds would be donated to Women's Aid Dublin.

Yesterday (30 August) at Arcade Fire's show at Dublin's 3Arena, fans noticed a sign at Feist's merchandise stand revealing that all proceeds from merch sales would be donated to domestic violence organisation Women's Aid Dublin.

The show marked Arcade Fire's first performance since multiple sexual misconduct allegations were made against lead vocalist Win Butler over the weekend (via Pitchfork), which he has "vehemently" denied.

Yesterday (30 August) Ottawa City News reported that some Canadian radio stations including CBC Music FM, Sirius XM channel CBC Radio 3 and Toronto's Indie88 will "pause" playing Arcade Fire music "until we learn more about the situation."
