This unique event taking place at DINA will see all 69 tracks from the album 69 Love Songs by American indie pop band The Magnetic Fields performed acoustically by artists from across Yorkshire.
The album received widespread critical acclaim when it was released in 1999 and was named as one of Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest albums of All Time. The Guardian described it as "an album of such tenderness, humour and bloody-minded diversity, it'll have you throwing away your preconceptions and wondering how you ever survived a broken heart without it.”
All money raised will go to the Snowdrop Project – a charity that empowers survivors of human trafficking to live lives no longer defined by their past.
