Skiddle have joined forces with Big Issue North as part of their new partnership to help to tackle poverty and homelessness in the north of England.

Over the next week, the Skiddle bus will become a touring stage, spending a day in the centre of five northern cities, hosting an array of new and established singers, musicians, bands, DJs and comedians. Artist confirmed to play across the series include acclaimed singer songwriter Tom Grennan, alt-pop outfit Y.O.U.N.G and Aziz Ibrahim, with DJ sets from the likes of Shed Seven's Rik Witter and more.

Kicking off on Tuesday 9th October, the bus will set up home in Piccadilly Gardens, before moving on to Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool and Preston.
