Let's come together to share some amazing live music and EU speakers, to support the Arts Sector under threat due to brexit. Rock the People’s Vote at Stanley Theatre, Liverpool University.
This non profit event is funded through crowd donations. We are counting on donations to pay for the venue, acts and campaigning material for the Final Say - if you want to help us spread the message please donate today.
It's time to show solidarity with our artists who rely on EU membership to succeed, to tour in the EU without restrictions. The Arts Sector employs 2 million people in the UK, one of our biggest sectors. Outside the EU artists will struggle to exist, or collaborate on EU projects and many will find themselves out of work. Young, up and coming artists will be affected the most. So Let's Rock the Final Say! To live, love and play in 28 EU countries without borders. To celebrate our European culture. Together we can show the world we are united in diversity. Rock4EU for the freedom to create - we belong together in harmony.

Headliner John Fairhurst, he has a cracking blues voice, with many diverse influences, “the phenomenon known as the Wigan Jimi Hendrix” “Possibly the finest guitarist you’ll ever see.” – (Chris Long BBC) Debuting songs from his new album Divided Kingdom. Very pro-EU, John often tours Europe.
Music is a powerful way of bringing people together and changing human consciousness. Politicians have become authoritarian and out of touch. It’s time to stand up and be heard – to start a revolution through music that will lead to a more inclusive, socially aware society. We are European and we wish to keep it that way. Being part of the EU allows us to travel, work, live and retire in 28 countries, with full rights of citizenship. It allows artists to travel freely around Europe without costly visas, customs and special forms for instruments. We can’t allow the politicians to take our freedom away from us so they can achieve their self-serving agendas. This EU land belongs to you and me. So let’s Rock the People’s Vote and take control of our destinies. It will be empowering, celebrating our amazing cultures that make us proud to be European.
We want to spread the message throughout the country: that it is possible to change our future for the better. Young people deserve a brighter future, as part of a democratic, unified Europe. They deserve a Final Say on Brexit.
We count on donations to make such events happen. If you believe in the power of culture and a united Europe, please make a donation and share this campaign.
