Today, the Stephen Lawrence Day Foundation (SLDF) has announced MORE LIFE – PASS THE MIC, a once-in-a-generation musical event that will take place, marking what would have been Stephen Lawrence’s 50th birthday. 

Featuring internationally acclaimed live performers, special guests, and hosts, the event will bring together a curated line-up of generation-defining artists representing the future of Stephen’s legacy.

Some of the UK’s most influential artists have been confirmed to take part, with many more notable names to be announced in the coming weeks. The artists and industry leaders behind this project are coming together to celebrate the power of Black culture, community, and allyship, and to honour Stephen’s remarkable legacy. The event will take place at The O2 arena in Greenwich, South-East London, which was Stephen’s home.

Through the medium of music MORE LIFE – PASS THE MIC converges art, history, culture, and community to celebrate and provide a platform for hopeful conversations about the future of Stephen’s legacy and the Black experience in the UK. The event promises to be unlike anything audiences have seen – and artists have participated in – before.

Baroness Lawrence, Stephen Lawrence’s mother and Founder of SLDF, commented: “Music has the power to touch people’s hearts and inspire shifts in how they view themselves and the world around them, much like Stephen did for those who knew and loved him, and the many who only know his story. The 13th September will be a time for reflection and celebration and a moment to uplift the beauty and brilliance of our community. Together, we can make a collective commitment to building a kinder, more equitable society in Stephen’s name.”
