At a time where festival season would normally be kickstarting, with music fans seeing their favourite artists live and making ever-lasting memories with friends, Unity 2020 will be aiming to fill this void, bringing everyone together through the power of great music and raising funds for an important cause in Women’s Aid.
Unity 2020 takes place on Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th May and it’s looking set to be a weekend to remember, initially streaming live from SSE Wembley Arena’s Facebook page from 2pm on Saturday and Sunday. With a line up not to be missed Freya Ridings says “I’m genuinely so humbled to be part of Unity Festival 2020 for Women’s Aid, it’s such an honour. I’m going to be playing you some songs from my piano at home in London”
