Banksy has designed some festive t-shirts to be sold at IDLES' sold-out gig at The Marble Factory in Bristol tonight (12 December).

The Marble Factory are hosting a homeless benefit gig with performances from Bootleg Blondie, Billy Nomates, MC: Martin from Homes Under the Hammer, Beak>, and the city's own stars IDLES.

As BBC notes, anonymous artist Banksy has decided to make some festive t-shirts to be sold at the gig tonight to help fundraise for the homeless.

The aim of the gig is to fund 400 sleep pods (originally used in Calais at refugee camps) for rough sleepers. The pods will be distributed to homeless charities in Bristol, Bath, and Weston.

Yesterday (11 December), IDLES revealed to Zane Lowe on his Apple Music Beats 1 show that their third album is currently being mixed, and features Kenny Beats as one of the producers.

Stormzy gave Banksy a shout out for the stab-proof vest he made for Stormzy's Glastonbury 2019 headline set in his new single "Audacity" yesterday too, closing the track with the lyrics: "When Banksy put the vest on me / Felt like God was testin' me."

IDLES, Beak>, and more play the sold-out homeless benefit gig tonight (12 December) at The Marble Factory in Bristol.
