Love Music Hate Racism
Wednesday 3 May
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
In a nutshell
Love Music Hate Racism uses the energy of the UK's music scene to celebrate diversity and involve people in anti-racist activity.
Love Music Hate Racism is the continuation of the Rock Against Racism (RAR) movement of the late 1970s, which seeks to use music to unite people and promote antiracism. There have been many hundreds of LMHR events, from large outdoor festivals to local gigs and club nights.
The LMHR campaign has a renewed importance with the increase in islamophobia, anti-migrant racism and hostility towards refugees in Britain and across Europe. We think it is time to reignite our national movement against racism and fascism through music. It is vital that everyone gets involved however they can.
Join them for a cultural event to mark the This is Hull! Rock Against Racism Posters 79-82 exhibition. The night will be an opportunity to learn about RAR and LMHR, enjoy some great music from talented artists and world music DJs.
LMHR recently had the backing from dozens of leading international artists such as Coldplay, Stormzy and Ed Sheeran, who wore the iconic ‘Love Music Hate Racism’ t-shirts to help relaunch the campaign

Why does Rich Mix matter?
'It plays a vital role in giving platforms to alternative music, art and cultural shows, at a time where live music venues are under threat in the city. They are a progressive and inclusive organisation that tries hard to engage the local community.'
