Rocking All Over Cancer sees some of the most well-loved and talented North East bands coming together to celebrate the life of Donna Forster, who tragically passed away in October last year following a brave fight against ovarian cancer.

This all-dayer at The Cluny on Saturday 29th October is a chance to raise money for Ovacome, an ovarian cancer charity close to Donna’s heart. Sunderland rockers The Futureheads headline the bill, after a successful Summer of festival appearances at the likes of Y Not and The Big Feastival, amongst others. South Shield’s Minotaurs play their first ‘gig proper’ in over six years in Donna’s memory, bringing their beautiful, melodic, folk-based guitar pop to the live scene. Genre busting artist Me Lost Me also features, with her wonderful melting pot of sounds, electronic effects and experimental delights. Plus, there’s sets from The Lake Poets, who brings his beautiful and heartfelt songs to proceedings; the infectious art rock trio Cat Ryan; the experimental noir pop of one-man band The Shooting Of; singer-songwriter John Egdell and a variety of DJs. A great line-up for a very worthy cause.

The Futureheads, The Lake Poets, Minotaurs, Me Lost Me, Cat Ryan, The Shooting Of and John Egdell play The Cluny, Newcastle on Saturday 29th October.
