Sofar Sounds at SEA LIFE Brighton on Wednesday, August 3

Sofar stage gigs in unusual places all over the world. From front rooms to concert halls. The ticket buyers take it for granted that it will be good, because the location is not announced until 36 hours before, and the lineup is never announced ahead of time. Some of the biggest stars have appeared in a secret Sofar line up at some point in their careers.

This gig is LGBTQ+ themed and has BRF as charity partner for the night.
