Concerts As Activism

Concerts As Activism

This session examines the different ways that concerts have been used either to promote political causes, raise funds for charities/ campaigns, or became political events in their own right. Students will be asked to look at three different case studies- ‘One Love Manchester’, (2017) ‘Northern Carnival against the Nazis’ (1978), and the ‘Acid House’ scene of the late 1980s.
