Dr. Martens #standforsomething English Tour / October and November 2016

By on Tuesday, 13th September 2016 at 9:00 am

Iconic British fashion brand Dr. Martens have just announced Formation, Paigey Cakey and VANT as the first three headliners on its Stand for Something Tour 2016. A fourth, for a show in London scheduled for the last Saturday of November (and somebody’s birthday, hint hint) is yet to be announced.

Twins Matt and Will Ritson, better known as dance duo Formation (pictured at top), will begin the series of #SFSTOUR16 on the 15th of October in Liverpool. On their participation in with the Stand for Something Tour, they said, “Formation means people coming together to express or celebrate something great. So we stand for a lot of things but ultimately it’s about standing together”.

Paigey Cakey Stand for Something 2016

Following the footsteps of Lady Leshurr, Hackney MC and actress Paigey Cakey, will perform on the tour on the last Saturday of October at the courtyard of Birmingham Rainbow. When asked what she stands for, her reply was: “I stand for myself, for one, but I wanna be the voice of the young people. I want to stand for the youth; I want to stand for something that means something. I feel like the youth of today need role models to look up to, so I want to stand for them.”

VANT Stand for Something 2016

When asked the same question, politically charged band VANT replied, “We stand for equality, awareness of the environmental concerns of this planet and a better education for all of our children.” VANT released their EP ‘Karma Seeker’ last month. Of all the artists chosen to represent the strength of solidarity, Mattie Vant’s lyrics demonstrate well the strength of a dissenting voice during these uncertain times.

To purchase tickets to the Dr. Martens Stand for Something Tour 2016, visit the Dr. Martens’ official Web site.

Saturday 15th October 2016 – Liverpool Scandinavian Church starring Formation
Saturday 29th October 2016 – Birmingham Rainbow Courtyard starring Paigey Cakey
