Saturday 22 July

In a nutshell
A night of live music, DJs and spoken word to support resistance to the arms trade.
Logic will be bringing his unique and powerful live show to Rich Mix to headline this event. A leading pioneer in conscious UK hip-hop, Logic's music combines powerful social commentary with anthemic hooks and razor-sharp beats for a breath taking live experience.
Logic will be joined by fellow London rapper Awate. An artist, activist and refugee, Awate’s music tackles subjects like identity, history, racism and pride over forward thinking, jazz-inspired beats.
The Resis’Dance DJ collective are a diverse group of women who came together to rock the dancefloor whilst challenging gender norms in the party and political scene. They will bring a blend of fresh beats and dance classics, spanning from soca and afrobeats through to house and garage
DJs Jon More & Matt Black - founders of the iconic Ninja Tune Record label – will close the night with their eclectic mash-up of hip-hop, breaks, electro and jazz for a very special video DJ set.
Dance To Disarm is part of a weekend of performance, workshops, speakers and discussions organised by Campaign Against Arms Trade and the Stop The Arms Fair.
