Viola Beach Memorial Fund Raiser, Friars Court 3rd September

2b828707-f675-4da2-bcc7-fbc7c6309d9a More bands are lining up to help raise funds for a permanent memorial to tragic indie band Viola Beach.

The Viola Beach Memorial Fund was set up to pay for a tribute to Warrington lads Kris Leonard, 20, River Reeves, 19, Tomas Lowe, 27, and Jack Dakin, 19, and their manager Craig Tarry, 32, who lost their lives in Sweden back in February.

Already, the likes of former touring buddies The Courteeners, Blossoms, The Zutons and Coldplay have honoured the memory of the group with fundraising shows and live cover versions.

And now a young line up of emerging talent from Viola Beach’s home town are lining up in support of the fund.



Young Cesar, Polareyes, Michigan, and Pacific will all perform at Friars Court, in Warrington, on September 3, from 6pm. All proceeds will go directly to the Viola Beach Memorial Fund.

Tickets, priced at £5, can be bought online via Fatsoma or on the door for £6

In other news, Viola Beach’s Debut Album was posthumously released last Friday, July 29, with a combined 6,000 sales ahead of 2nd place on the official charts. Read more here
