Leipzig for Ukraine fundraising concert



Leipzig for Ukraine (LE4UA) presents a fundraising concert in support of the victims and survivors of the war in Ukraine. With musical acts of different genres, DJs, and a raffle prize draw, there is something for everyone to enjoy – all for a worthy cause.

From the LE4UA team:

“Like many, if not all of the people of Leipzig, we are shocked and dismayed by the war of aggression in Ukraine and against our twin city, Kyiv. In times of such crises, we are convinced that we all have to do our part and send a clear signal. That’s why we decided to organize this event to collect money for the refugees and victims of the war in Ukraine.”

The event takes place under 3G regulations. This means that guests will need to present proof of Covid jab or recovery. Alternatively, they can present the negative result of an official Covid test that is less than 24 hours old.

The LE4UA team is pleased to announce the following acts for the evening:

Batiar Gang – Arousing Balkan-Klezmer-Borshch and Eastern European punk-folk from Leipzig. They make the kind of music you just have to dance to!
