Musicians, refugees and communities are coming together to recognise the things that unite them.

‘Give a Home’ is a first-of-its-kind global day of live music events taking place in people’s homes, in which 1,000 musicians will perform at over 300 concerts in more than 200 cities globally. The event takes place on 20th September, and will bring together musicians, refugees, and music fans in the aim of uniting people to welcome refugees.

This initiative, promoted by Amnesty International and Sofar, is, in fact, an unprecedented global celebration of music and community and a chance for people to give support to refugees.

The National, Ed Sheeran, Bastille, James Morrison, Daughter, Local Natives and The Fratellis are some of the important artists who will take part in this campaign.

How can I apply for the tickets?

Fans will have an opportunity to win up to two tickets to the act of their choice. They are encouraged to make a donation which will go to Amnesty International in order to combat the global refugee crisis

The lucky ones will receive a notification between 10th and 17th September.

How is Amnesty International helping refugees?

Amnesty International is working in order to give support to the documentation tasks about human rights abuses and violations against refugees, and, at the same time, encourages governments to find a sustainable solution to the crisis.
