Save Rise Festival!

just received

“Greetings Rise Festival fans,

This is your chance to help save one of London’s most-loved festivals for just £1!

UpRise Against Racism has been working with many of the team behind Rise Festival to bring about a return of the free anti-racism festival this summer.

UpRise was set up last year by a dedicated team of volunteers to ensure the Rise Festival legacy continues – now we’ve got the know-how, expertise and plans to put on an event worthy of carrying on that legacy.

We need to raise £100,000 to pay for the production of UpRise by Wednesday, March 31st. Although it’s a lot of money, if the 100,000 people who attended Rise 2008 donated JUST £1, we would reach our target!

Rise supporters can get behind the cause by donating just £1 via And be sure to come along on the day to get your money’s worth!

If you’ve enjoyed Rise in the past and want to see it back, believe in the cause or have only just become a follower, back the campaign to keep the flame of London’s much-loved Rise Festival alive!

A facebook group has been set up at:

Please help us spread the word by inviting your friends to this group.

Together we can bring it back!

Yours in hope and solidarity

Freya & The UpRise Team x”
