Liverpool’s Melodic Distraction, an independent radio station broadcasting the sounds of the city since 2017, has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to help the community hub secure a new permanent space.
Hoping to reach a goal of £35k to cover the cost of relocating, Melodic Distraction are embarking on a range of fundraising activities including one-off broadcasts reuniting station alumni, a limited-edition zine and a huge vinyl raffle featuring donations from some of Liverpool’s most loved institutions, DJs and bands including Crazy P, Yousef (Circus Recordings) and Greg Wilson.
In recent years, despite Liverpool’s national recognition as a cultural hotbed, there has been growing concern that gentrification and developers could decimate the city’s flourishing culture hub in the Baltic Triangle district.
With the impact of Covid-19 now threatening even more of the city’s creative landmarks, Melodic Distraction are determined to help to protect Liverpool’s vibrant music scene by raising funds to build a new community-focused music space in 2021.
