Awareness creates action and action will save lives. Music is one of the key tools we use to raise awareness of Peace Day 21 September. As well as being musical celebrations of peace, these events are an opportunity to thank all our supporters, highlight the extraordinary global Peace Day activities and promote the coming year.

To date, Peace One Day has produced seven high-profile music-driven celebrations at the Royal Albert Hall, London; Brixton Academy, London; Le Grand Rex, Paris and Le Zenith, Paris and the O2 arena London.

The Peace One Dat Concert in Derry~Londonderry will take place in the newly restored Ebrington site. The open air concert will officially open the London 2012 Festival. Tickets are now available via Ticketmaster.
