A concert in London highlighting two acts that have featured in the Eurovision Song Contest.
Now I know the ESC polarises opinion, but please don't be put off by the Eurovision tag, as there are some hidden gems to be found!
Venue and date: to be confirmed but planning for Summer 2016 in London.
Headline Act: Litesound from Belarus. Founded in 2005 by brothers Dmitry and Vladimir Karyakin, Litesound are one of the top music acts in their country and recipient of several awards including: People's Music Choice Award 2015, Eurostar Award 2012, Finalist of New Wave Stars 2010 and Song of the Year Award 2009 and 2008. Highly original, they compose and perform their own music, as well as producing their own music videos.
Eager to expand their fan base outside of Belarus, this will be their first visit to the UK, so all help is needed to make this a success.
Second act will be a former Eurovision entrant for the UK - to be announced soon.
I had the opportunity to see Litesound at a concert in October 2015 in Amsterdam. Struck up a connection with frontman, Dmitry, and now I am helping organise the group's first trip to the UK.
Need to raise a small amount of capital to cover expenses such as venue hire, promotion, printing of a souvenir programme and some travel costs. Anything pledgers can contribute - big or small - would be most welcome. I've set the ball rolling by adding the first donation!
