Legendary hip-hop icon and activist yasiin bey (formerly known as Mos Def) will headline Fair Play: Live 2018, an international music event bringing together musicians from around the world to perform in support of social justice. The event takes place at renowned venue, VEGA, in Copenhagen, Denmark on 23 of October 2018.

Opening for bey are the winners of the Fair Play online music video competition, an international initiative that raises awareness around the impact of corruption on local communities. The winners were chosen from 43 entries from 21 countries. They are: 

  • Malawian afro-soul one-man-band Faith Mussa, who has taken his socially-engaged musical outlook around the world, from TEDxLilongwe to Glastonbury 2017. He is known locally for campaigning against corruption and other social ills. 
  • Rain in Sahara, an Indian hip-hop fusion trio who received critical acclaim for their breakthrough music video ‘Black Water’, a recent Gold Medal winner at the Indian Music Video Awards. It tackles issues of corruption, inequality and environmental damage.
  • Colombian band Haga Que Pase, who fuse the sounds of urban Cali with those of rural Columbia to create a vibrant groove which chronicles the lives of everyday Colombians and indigenous people, providing a positive message for those living through difficult political conditions. 

Fair Play also features Nasseman, the prolific reggae artist and social activist and previous Fair Play winner who uses his voice to bring hope and consciousness to the plight of the poor throughout his native Liberia.

Doors open at 18:00 and the performance will run from 19:00 onwards. You can reserve your ticket online via Ticketmaster
