In response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, London-based music collective R3 Soundsystem are planning a fundraising rave to support humanitarian efforts.

The event will take place on Friday, March 11th at the South London club Venue MOT and will run for nine hours, from 10PM to 7AM. Craig Richards, The Blessed Madonna, and Róisín Murphy will perform DJ sets, among others.

"As part of the fundraiser, we will raise crucial funds destined for aid, refugee assistance and evacuations," R3 Soundsystem said. "The money raised, the group added, will go to Bündnis Entwicklung Hilft (Alliance for Development Help), Fulcrum UA and All Out to provide humanitarian help on the ground, and support people in Ukraine and refugees in the neighbouring countries that they are fleeing to."

Tickets to R3's fundraising rave can be purchased here.
