Rock Against Violence is back on 16 November for its 6th year at the O2 Academy Islington! Tickets available at RAV2017.eventbrite.co.uk.

We are looking to raise £30K of unrestricted funds this year for Solace Women's Aid to fund services such as children's therapy in refuges.

2017 Lineup:

Saint Agnes

Garage rock band and RAV headliners Saint Agnes formed in 2014 and have released four sell-out singles and a live EP. With their gritty, DIY work ethic they have risen from the underground to claim their place as one of London's most compelling and authentic live bands with a devoted following. They draw their audience in with songs of love and betrayal and electrify with their fuzzed out, hook-laden, desert stomp. In the eye of this sonic storm Saint Agnes create a world entirely of their own and all who witness it are left believing every word.

Dead Coast

Dead Coast are a 4 piece psych / blues / surf / garage band based in London. They released their debut album ‘Shambolic’ in 2016, followed by their first ever US tour in 2017 in support of their standalone single titled ‘The Silt’, including appearances at SXSW and gigs in New York, Chicago and LA.

The Wild Things

The Wild Things are a four-piece alternative rock band from West London. Pulling from early influences as wide as the Beach Boys and Foo Fighters by way of a Weezer pop-tinged lean, the band’s recent output has seen them pull in a rockier, dirtier vibe recalling The Smashing Pumpkins and Band of Skulls via Wolf Alice.

The Sly Persuaders

The Sly Persuaders make raucous garage rock soaked in searing guitars, surf-pop beats and layers of gypsy-psych percussion. With a DIY ethic and reputation for hard work, coupled with gang-style backing vocals and anthemic choruses, they’ve cultivated a respectable following on the live London music scene. Their eponymous debut album was released in February this year.

Ticket Information

Advanced tickets cost £15 and are on sale at RAV2017.eventbrite.co.uk. Tickets on the door will be £18. During the show, there will also be a silent auction and raffle prizes to raise additional funds for Solace, including holiday accommodation, private bartending services, collector's items, beauty products and many more.

Rock Against Violence is driven by Power of Solace, a volunteer organisation that raises funds to benefit Solace Women’s Aid via various events and activities throughout the year. Established in 2011, Rock Against Violence has grown into Solace’s annual flagship music event, earning a staggering £26,000 in 2016.

All proceeds go directly to Solace Women's Aid.
