RAV is back for its 6th year and will take place on Thursday 16 November at the O2 Academy in Islington. This year the concert is partnering with London-based upcoming DIY label Roadkill Records and will feature some of the capital’s premiere new bands, all in aid of Solace Women’s Aid.
Solace is a London-based charity that supports women and children affected by domestic and sexual violence, helping more than 11,000 survivors each year. Established in 2011, Rock Against Violence has grown into Solace’s annual flagship music event, raising a staggering £26,000 in 2016.
“We’re really thrilled and grateful that these talented bands are all helping us campaign against domestic and sexual abuse. There is such a widespread problem across the capital with thousands of women and children needing support after experiencing horrific abuse. Gigs like these reach new audiences and help raise awareness of the issues as well as the services that can support women and girls to be safe, recover and live independently free from abuse.” Mary Mason, Chief Executive Officer at Solace Women’s Aid.
