Love Music Hate Racism returns for 2011

LoveMusic HateRacism is back on Saturday 12th February at The Grand Social with a line up of bands and DJs. North Strand Kontra Band, Zealots and Champagne Animal are the live acts for the event with Indietronic (Eamonn Barrett & Guests) & FeelGoodFriday (Martin Ansbro & Guests) DJs on both floors. It all kicks off at 9pm with a suggested donation of €4.

Spokesperson Kurt Nikolaisen said ”we have gained a lot of support in the last year which allowed us to set up an eclectic committee including industry heads, musicians and anti-racism NGO activists. Out aim for 2011 is to not only to create a multi cultural environment at our musical events but to take what we have learned here and apply it other cities. We also want to provide a platform for musicians and genres that might not always be mixed with main music scene, while at the same time promoting the anti-racism message by linking up with NGOs that are already tackling this issue.”

Love Music Hate Racism are also inviting anyone who wants to be involved in the project to attend a ”Volunteer Think Tank” meeting on Saturday 19th February at Carmichael House , North Brunswick Street Dublin 2 at 2pm. You can get in touch with them by visiting
