Rise: London United Against Racism

Saturday, July 14, 2007

While some people claim racism is just a U.S. problem, we know that’s not true…and it’s great to see festivals like this continue on. I just wish I could be there - maybe next year!

London’s free anti-racist music festival, Rise: London United, will take place on Sunday 15 July 2007at Finsbury Park. Featuring acts from the world of hip-hop, indie, pop, jazz and reggae.

This is the seventh year that the Mayor of London has organised this free festival to oppose racism and celebrate the diversity of London.

In 2006, nearly 100,000 young people and families attended the festival, (view a slideshow of the festival).
