The online event, which will take place this weekend and will feature performances from Willie J Healey, TV Priest, Fenne Lily and more, will raise money for Gig Buddies, which pairs adults with learning disabilities (and/or autism) with a volunteer who has similar interests so they can attend live music events together.
As well as featuring a test pressing of Kid A, the Gig Buddies charity raffle will feature other prizes from The National, Mogwai, Sharon Van Etten, Slowdive, Orlando Weeks, Laura Marling, Young Fathers and more.
IDLES bassist Adam 'Dev' Devonshire has organised the online event, which will be livestreamed from The Exchange in Bristol.
