The second year of live music is nearly underway for Alan McGee's Musicians Against Homelessness (MAH) campaign. Gigs are planned across the whole of the UK, with artists including The Vryll Society, Sugarmen and The Jackobins to name a few.

Founded last year by the Creation Records boss, MAH raises money for homeless charity Crisis and has the backing of some of music's best know names, including Lily Allen and members of Happy Mondays, Buzzcocks and The Jesus & Mary Chain.

With over 4,000 people sleeping rough every night as of Dec 2016, last year's event saw local artists and independent venues raise over £40,000 for Crisis.

This year, the organisation is expanding, with Live@Troon festival announcing it will be official associates, donating a portion of their ticket sales to the cause.

Musicians Against Homelessness 2017 events include the following:

Liverpool - Hangar 34, Saturday 2nd - Sunday 3rd September

Troon - Live@Troon, Friday 8th - Sunday 10th September

Glasgow - Drygate, Saturday 16th September

Chelmsford - Asylum,  Friday 29th September
