WE’RE BACK – The Headfunk Online Festival
Testing… Testing… 1.. 2…
Are you picking us up OK?
Hello again internet. It’s bloody wonderful to see you. How have you been? We hope you’re holding up well in these crazy times.
As you may have noticed last weekend, we launched an online festival to raise money for The Trussell Trust, The UK’s largest food bank network, who are currently working tirelessly to make sure no-one goes hungry during the pandemic. What started as a plan to have a few of the residents and extended members of the Headfunk family spin for a few hours, evolved into a 3-day long digital festival, with acts joining in from all around the world.
We have a few MASSIVE ‘Thank-Yous’ that need going out. Firstly to everyone who performed, There are TONNES of you. Thank you so so much for everyone who gave up their time to perform. The caliber across the weekend was SPECTACULAR. Most of the videos are still on our Facebook page, and you can catch up here, We’ve also created a Spotify playlist of some of the acts featured, in case you would like to find their discography online, which you can find by clicking here. If you would like to support these amazing people, try to download their material on Bandcamp (Who are waiving their fees for the next few days.)
A HUGE thank you to both NOAH. and Our Girl G, both of whom were instrumental in helping us overcome the technical barriers required to bring the event together. Thank you so much. We couldn’t have done it without you. A BIG BIG thanks also need to go out to Tom Headfunk and Jah Nipsy, we couldn’t have achieved it without your love and support. Thanks guys
FINALLY, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, a massive thank you to everyone who tuned in to vibe with us and donate to Trussell Trust. We raised £400 all told, which is incredible. Every single penny of which is now on its way to them, via JustGiving.
It’s been an emotional week, and I won’t lie, I spent most of Monday asleep in a dark room. But all of the energy and love has inspired us. When we come out of the other side of this, We’ll party in the sunshine once more.
Love to all of you.
