Brighton is to remember the late Keith Flint, founding member of the electronic dance act the Prodigy who died in tragic circumstances earlier this year at the age of 49.

The Keith Flint charity fundraiser UK tour will take in 11 dates in 11 cities, including Brighton, with ticket sales going to partner charities dedicated to improving mental health and preventing suicide. 100% of ticket sales go to charity; 50% to The CALMzone, 50% to Mind.

As spokesman Josh Counsell explains: “We are proud to announce Music For The Jilted Generation UK Tour in honour of the late, great Keith Flint with ALL profits going to CALM and MIND

“With £5500 already raised and on track to double that from their London shows this Saturday, The Cause have partnered with venues and local collectives in Manchester, Sheffield, Brighton, Southampton, Leeds, Edinburgh, Sunderland, Glasgow, Southend, with many other cities in the pipeline.

“Their aim is to raise maximum awareness and funds for mental health charities.

“For those that can't make the event we've also set up a Just Giving page which will go directly to The Cause's charity partners - https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/musicforthejiltedgeneration?fbclid=IwAR3l8WaIIpTlTSqOPV5XI9-jQPgNnXF8ZfvN6igulhkc3ks8n3b8y2xyGCQ

“In memory of Keith Flint the music industry has rallied together in a matter of days and put this UK tour on, the teams aim to raise as much money as possible whilst bringing mental health awareness to the masses. Please help us raise much money by spreading the message further.

“The tour, curated in collaboration with NLA Artists, will be a UK-wide celebration of the music Keith and The Prodigy inspired. Local heroes will play alongside those who the band shared line-ups with and whose records were played at events during their rise to fame. All artists performing throughout the tour will perform 100% for free.
