A 24-hour Bruce Springsteen marathon is taking place this weekend

In a bid to raise money for a number of charities deeply affected by the current coronavirus pandemic, a 24-hour virtual DJ set of Bruce Springsteen’s biggest hits has been announced to take place this weekend.

“We want to raise £10,000 for several charities that really need extra support right now, so on Saturday 2 May we will be DJing 24 hours of non-stop Springsteen, and we’d love you to support us,” Hannah Summers and Jon Beck, the organisers behind the Hungry Heart club night said.

“Help us raise as much as we possibly can for Childline, Trussell Trust, Barts Trust, Age UK and Hospice UK.”

This 24-hour ‘house party’ will take place from 1pm Saturday, May 2nd and run through the same time the next day. “We want everyone from around the world to get involved and join our Springsteen-athon,” they continued. “It doesn’t matter what time it is, we will be live streaming our DJ set all day and all night, splitting the hours up into different ‘themes’.”

They added: “We’re so pleased that our Hungry Heart house parties have spread some joy at this difficult time – now let’s go one step further and raise what we can for the other people who need our help right now!”
