Morrissey has stepped in to save the Love Music Hate Racism Carnival this sunday after a major sponsor pulled out. The star made a personal contribution to allow the 30th Anniverstay Rock Against Racism event to go ahead, as well as rallying his management, booking agents and promoters to help make up the deficit.

Morrissey commented, "This is a historic event spreading an important, anti-racist, message so it must be allowed to go ahead. Love Music Hate Racism got in touch and explained that the NME had pulled support, possibly as a result of their association with me, and asked if I could help as they had not been able to replace them. This is something I am commited to and we appreciate everyone coming together so quickly to make it happen."

The event will take place on Sunday 27th April at Victoria Park, London with acts including The Good, The Bad and The Queen, Hard-Fi, The View, Roll Deep, Jerry Dammers RAR Allstars and Get Cape.Wear Cape.Fly.
