Love Music Hate Racism announce comeback gig because of Brexit

Ellie Walker-Arnott

Love Music Hate Racism is returning to London for a gig this Halloween weekend. They've been quiet for the last couple of years, but they are back, because of 'the uprise of racist incidents following Brexit.' 

'The LMHR campaign has a renewed importance with the increase in islamophobia, anti-migrant racism and hostility towards refugees in Britain and across Europe. We think it is time to reignite our national movement against racism and fascism through music,' say the organisation. 

Their comeback gig is set to feature a mix of grime, punk, electro and ska musicians, from Terror Danjah and The Specials founder Jerry Dammers to Nova Twins, Saskilla and Spektrum. 

Love Music Hate Racism aims to unite people through music and celebrate diversity and was inspired by Rock Against Racism in the late '70s. There have been hundreds of LMHR events, from festivals to club nights, since it launched in 2002. 

The latest gig is taking place at Rich Mix on October 29 will 'be the first of many to come'.
