Rock for Europe

We are musicians, artists and activists from Chester for Europe, who are organising music events in Chester, Liverpool and Manchester to support our EU membership. Our aim is to make Rock for Europe a nationwide event, with bands, speakers and dancers performing in solidarity with our EU neighbours, and to spread the message that we can maintain our EU membership. We wish to make people aware of the People’s Vote and how they can have a final say on the EU deal, with the option to remain. The theme of our event is unity, cultural diversity, and shared European values of peace and democracy.  
We rely on donations for these events and to campaign for the People's Vote. Any donation is appreciated. Make a £10 donation for all day live music, an EU flag and Rock for Europe badge. With a £25 plus donation you will also receive our unique Rock for Europe t-shirt.

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.

Each event will have acoustic sessions, speakers and European food in the day, plus headlining bands in the evening, showcasing a great mix of music – rock, folk,  indie and soul, representing the diverse cultures of the continent. It will be empowering, celebrating our amazing cultures that make us proud to be European.

This non profit event is funded through crowd donations. We rely on donations to organise pro-EU events and campaign for the People's Vote - if you want to help us spread the message please donate. Make a £10 donation for all day live music, an EU flag, stickers and Rock for Europe badge and we'll send you a ticket-receipt. With a £25 plus donation you will also receive our unique Rock for Europe t-shirt. If you wish to make a donation without attending please specify in the message box.

The money will be used for: paying the performers' expenses, promotional and campaigning material – banners, badges, leaflets, flags and t-shirts. Audio visual recordings to raise awareness on social media and newspaper ads.

Our first event is in Chester on the 22 September, at Telford’s Warehouse: The Trials of Cato, Phil Hare, EU Elvis, Will Riding, Zinney Sonnenberg,  Madeleina Kay, Sophie Dodd, King Fisher with members of Galleon Blast, Jonathan Tarplee of the Blue Yellows, and EU speakers like Cosi Doerfel Hill and Nish Goyal. Plus craft stalls along the canal and European food and drinks available to buy throughout the day. 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.
