Among the charities supported by Festival Republic one is very close to our hearts. The Martin House Children’s Hospice based near Wetherby, Leeds.
So we’re of course thrilled that some of the artists on the bill for this year’s Reading & Leeds Festival have donated items for a charity auction on their behalf.
With bands including headliners The Cure, Foo Fighters and Kasabian along with the likes of Florence & The Machine, The Cribs, Kaiser Chiefs, Paramore, Two Door Cinema Club, Enter Shikari, You Me At Six all confirming they’ll include signed items such as set lists, clothes and instruments which will be displayed at a respected Leeds venue post-festival and then auctioned via the charities official site on eBay. You can also bid on a framed NME cover of your choice from the last decade of the magazine!
