'TOGETHER 4 YES' announce lineup for fundraiser gig at the Olympia

The gig will take place on 2nd May and tickets are available now.

Backed by the Repeal Project, the event aims to generate funding for the national campaign to repeal the 8th Amendment, Together 4 Yes.

So far, the acts announced include:

-- Mary Black

-- The Strypes

-- La Galaxie

-- Mango

-- Thanks Brother

The campaign is advising people to buy tickets sooner rather than later, as they expect them to sell out due to demand.

The announcement comes off the back of the huge crowdfunding success to raise money for official campaign posters and now a leaflet drop, after the target of €50,000 was reached just two hours after launch.

Now they aim to reach €500,000 in total with just four days left and over 12,400 donors. The total funds will allow for booklets to be sent out across the nation on canvassing events, in addition to 25,000 posters.

Tickets are available now at ticketmaster.ie
