“Music does bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit. No matter what language we speak, what colour we are, the form of our politics or the expression of our love and our faith, music proves: We are the same.” – John Denver
We at Road to Freedom are proud to announce that we have officially partnered up with Lovebox where we will be on site for both days of the highly anticipated music festival (Friday 14th/Saturday 15th July) in order to raise awareness and funds which will all go towards the aid of refugees worldwide.
In the past few months we’ve had to helplessly witness one travesty after another unfold in our capital city of London. However, it is sometimes in the most testing of times that communities pull together like never before and refuse to give in to terror and tragedy.
One thing that is important to remember is that for other people across the globe, this living nightmare has become their everyday reality. Whether that be bombs falling on their homes at night, or making the perilous journey across the sea to get to a safe place, the fear we’ve briefly endured is something they are sadly accustomed too.
It’s sometimes easy to overlook someone else’s pain when we are dealing with our own but the turmoil refugees are currently enduring every single day is unquantifiable.
It goes without saying that music has the ability to unite and uplift people from all walks of life, like no other art form can and now more than ever we need to pull together to do what we can for those most in need.
We will be backstage both days at Lovebox interviewing artists and mingling among festival go-ers with our charity buckets, so if you see us please come and say hi and spread the word. On the Saturday we have also been given use of one of the festival tents, so please come and check out what we have in store for you there!
It’s never too late to extend a hand of hope to those that need it the most.
