Throughout August fans of Joe Strummer are uniting around the world under the StrummerJam banner by hosting independent gigs, shows, festivals and DJ sets to celebrate the memory of Joe Strummer and to help raise funds.
There are StrummerJam fundraising gigs being organised in England, United States, Mexico & Peru adding up to a total of 13 gigs, raising funds for Warmi Rock Camp Peru, Petworth Town Youth Band, The Joe Strummer Foundation, Music & Memory with more still in the pipeline.
Give A Gig: How It Works
We want to see many more cities, towns and countries on the StrummerJam world map and if you want to get your band involved there’s still time to do so.
If you have a gig coming up this August and would like to participate in StrummerJam and help raise funds for the Joe Strummer Foundation here’s what you do:
- Register your event on this page, include your band name, the venue & the date
- Email the Facebook event link to us (details will be sent to you on registration)
- Wait for the follow-up email, with your StrummerJam link
- Tell everyone about the StrummerJam (of course!)
- On the night, play a Joe Strummer/Clash track (or more!)
- On the night, pass a bucket around, collect some coins from your fans, family and friends tell them their cash will go towards supporting the work of The Joe Strummer Foundation
- Donate the funds via this page (remember it’s about how much you raise, it’s about taking part)
What you will get in return
As with all StrummerJam gigs, yours will be added to our StrummerJam map on our website and our social media. We will promote each StrummerJam, which will help promote your event to more people.
You will most importantly be taking part in a global event celebrating the life and music of Joe Strummer, plus you will be helping the StrummerJam campaign to reach more people, and you will be helping The Joe Strummer Foundation to continue our work in supporting music projects around the world that create empowerment through music.
So what are you waiting for? Don’t spectate, participate now … and head over to this page and Give a Gig to StrummerJam this August!
