Liam Gallagher and Beverley Knight are the latest stars to join the line-up for the Co-op’s Music Feeds virtual music festival to fight food poverty. 

The event, which will feature 40 international stars, will raise money to fight food poverty during the two-day live stream on January 28 and 29. 

The performance will be Oasis star Liam’s first live-streamed gig since December, when he performed his Down By The River virtual concert. 

As well as Liam and Beverley, other stars confirmed for the show include Sam Smith, Blossoms, Newton Faulkner and Flogging Molly. 

All the profits from the event, put on by the Co-op and promoters Everybody Belongs Here, will be donated to those struggling with food poverty, 

Co-op will also donate £1million on top of the proceeds from tickets to the Music Feeds event which will go to FareShare to fight food poverty and Help Musicians and Stagehand, who look after musicians and live crew members who have been left out of work as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Jo Whitfield, CEO of Co-op Food, said: ‘Hunger knows no borders, and neither should our response. 

‘All year round, Co-op works to tackle food hunger and we’re thrilled to be uniting with outstanding musicians from across the world to turn up the volume on the issue.

‘The pandemic has brought a sharper focus on issues such as food poverty and many in the music industry have seen their livelihoods disappear overnight because of lockdown restrictions. 

‘It’s right that we should lend our support and co-operate with musicians to raise awareness and raise funds for such vital causes.’

Tickets cost £15 and will give ticketholders access to both nights, with the price being set so as many people as possible can get involved and raise vital funds. 

Music Feeds will take place on January 28 and 29, tickets are available to buy now, from here.
