24 Non-Stop Bruce Springsteen-athon
Aiming to raise funds for five charities which were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic namely Childline, Barts Trust, the Trussell Trust, Hospice UK, and Age UK, Hungry Heart club night organizers Hannah Summers and Jon Beck will whip up a 24-hour DJ set filled with nothing but Bruce Springsteen tracks. It kicks off on May 2, Saturday at 1PM BST/ 8AM ET.
For those who can spare a bigger amount, they have something for you. The first donation over £100 will get to choose the first song. Those who will donate more than £10 gets a chance to win free tickets to every single Hungry Heart club night – for life. £30 will get a shoutout, £50 lets you request a song.
Summers and Beck wrote, “We want everyone from around the world to get involved and join our Springsteen-athon. It doesn’t matter what time it is, we will be live streaming our DJ set all day and all night, splitting the hours up into different themes!”
They added, “We’ve loved holding our lockdown house parties and are so pleased they’ve helped provide some joy at this difficult time. Let’s all go one step further together and raise what we can for the other people who need our help right now!”
The playlist will be a mix of greatest hits, deep cuts, and also back catalog covers.
