Basement Jaxx Gig in support of Cardiovascular Research Centre RC Appeal
Dance giants Basement Jaxx will play an exclusive DJ set on May 10 at Leicester’s O2 Academy to support the University of Leicester’s Cardiovascular Research Centre appeal, with all funds raised from ticket sales going directly towards the new unit at Glenfield Hospital.
Members Simon Ratcliffe and Leicester-born Felix Buxton are currently working on the follow up to their 2009 albums “Scars” and “Zephyr”, and fans will be able to catch a preview of new Basement Jaxx material during their headline set.
The London-based duo will be supported by dubstep producer Boy Kid Cloud and Leicester-based rising stars I Am In Love.
All of the artists will be performing for free to help support the appeal, which aims to raise the final £1 million needed to complete and equip the new £12.6m Cardiovascular Research Centre at the Glenfield Hospital, the regional centre for secondary and specialist cardiac care.
The event has been organised by the Development and Alumni Relations Office in collaboration with the Students’ Union and the O2 Academy.
Tickets for the event are £8 each and can be purchased via the O2 Academy.
