Louisa Rose Allen, aka singer and musician Foxes, is attempting to set a new world record for playing the 'most live concerts in 12 hours in multiple cities'. It's in aid of youth cancer charity Trekstock (the organisers are hoping to raise at least £20,000 for Trekstock in the process) and car manufacturer Citroën are lending a hand too – they're providing Foxes with a new motor in which she can drive from city to city.
The record attempt will take place across south east England on May 27, involving Foxes undertaking a 250-mile journey around Southampton (where the attempt begins at 10am), Brighton, Guildford, Reading, Oxford and High Wycombe, finishing with a performance in London at House of Vans at 9.45pm. Foxes will play a 15-minute set at each venue, but there will be support acts as well. As with her regular gigs, expect to hear a gorgeous collision of yearning harmonies and glitch-fangled indie, which should find favour with fans of Florence And The Machine and Marina And The Diamonds.
