Many venue bars will be further participating in the Music Venue Trust’s fund-raising campaign by stocking Fightback Lager, a craft beer developed from within the grassroots music community. A donation from every pint and can sold gives financial support to the charity.
Fightback’s Gary Prosser said: “These venues are the backbone of the live music scene in Brighton, providing spaces where artists can take their first steps, develop and grow. Fightback Brighton provides an opportunity to showcase the fantastic range of artists and venues that Brighton enjoys, celebrate the history of our music scene and support its future.”
Alongside more than 150 shows in 19 venues, the event will also host the showing of a short film “Our Growing Silence” narrated by actor Art Malik, panel discussions and networking.
Fightback Brighton is keen to interact with local Brighton businesses to create a truly unique festival that unifies the Brighton grassroots community.
