Another month has passed, filled with busy but exciting activities here at the Pistonhead Foundation. Read on for what we got up to…
Dr Martens x The Who Launch Party
Dr Martens have teamed up with The Who to launch a limited edition collection and campaign. On 6th June, they hosted a launch party for this at their flagship Carnaby Street store. As well as a chance to see the collection for the first time, the party hosted a charity silent auction in partnership with The Teenage Cancer Trust. Guests were treated to the DJ skills of Radio 1 DJ Matt Edmondson, and of course cans of Pistonhead Lager!

No Fun All Dayer at Drop the Dumbulls
Liverpudlian venue Drop the Dumbulls is a recently renovated pub heroing the local music scene. On 15th June, the put on an all dayer, with 11 great bands and 2 DJs. The Dumbulls provided the bands, Howl at the Moon Hot Sauce provided the food, we provided the beer! There was lots of amazing music from the likes of HAMER, Ohmns, Leather Party, Uncle Jane and many more.

Deadwax TV Launch Party
Deadwax TV is a brand new music platform. Their aim is to bring fans closer to their favourite artists in a way that a usual interview setting wouldn’t be able to. They want to share new music and visual art with the world, instead of celebrated mediocrity.
Pistonhead love to champion new music and anything alternative, so when they asked us to sponsor their launch party, of course we said yes. It was an amazing all day gig at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on 16th June. Bands playing included Mother Engine, Kurokoma and many more.

Music on the Farm for Martha’s Trust
Martha’s Trust is a charity providing inclusive, lifelong care for people with profound physical and learning disabilities in Kent and East Sussex. Every June, they host a lovely family friendly festival to raise funds, on Solley’s Ice Cream Parlour farm in Ripple, Kent. We were pleased to be able to sponsor such a worthwhile cause.
It was a sunny, successful day on Sunday 30th June, and the charity managed to raise nearly £25,000!
