Net proceeds from ticket sales will be split by event producer and promoter Everybody Belongs Here with 70% going to FareShare, 20% to Stagehand and 10% to Help Musicians.
The two-day virtual event is supported by Co-Op, who will donate £1 million to be split with the same percentages between FareShare (helping to provide around 2.5 million meals), Help Musicians and Stagehand.
According to NME, Jo Whitfield, the CEO of Co-op Food, said, "Hunger knows no borders, and neither should our response. All year round, Co-op works to tackle food hunger and we’re thrilled to be uniting with outstanding musicians from across the world to turn up the volume on the issue."
"The pandemic has brought a sharper focus on issues such as food poverty and many in the music industry have seen their livelihoods disappear overnight because of lockdown restrictions," Whitfield continued. "It’s right that we should lend our support and co-operate with musicians to raise awareness and raise funds for such vital causes."
