The Cause is hosting a mental health fundraiser on Saturdy 16th March in honour of Keith Flint, The Prodigy frontman who died on Monday, aged 49.
The London venue, which already has strong links with several charities including mental health organisations, will donate all proceeds from ticket sales and bar takings to partners Mind and CALM.
Nebula 2, Billy Nasty, Slipmatt, Ellis Dee, Nookie & MC Five Alive, Jason Warlock and NVWLS are all confirmed for the event, with full details on Facebook and a Just Giving page up and running for those unable to attend.
A statement released by The Prodigy's Liam Howlett on Monday confirmed that Flint had died by suicide, again raising the subject of mental health in the music industry. Those involved in music and struggling to cope can contact Help Musicians UK, while people experiencing emotional distress of any kind in the UK can call The Samaritans free 24-hours a day on 116 123.
