Strummerville is a registered charity that aims to create new opportunities for aspiring musicians. Set up by the friends and family of Joe Strummer in the year after his death, the charity seeks to reflect Joe's unique contribution to the music world by offering support, resources and performance opportunities to artists who would not normally have access to them.
The work of Strummerville includes funding for new musicians, providing a DIY platform for un-signed artists to showcase their music, The Rinse Academy, campfire sessions at UK festivals to showcase new talent, rehearsal space and so much more.
This year will see the first ever Strummervile national tour kicking off on October 10th with Rum Shebeen, The Supernovas and Beans On Toast all cramming into the Strummerville bus.
