Louis Tomlinson today announces a global streaming event on 4th September 2021.
The event features a mini documentary and full concert, alongside post show backstage footage. The 30 minute documentary joins Louis as he undertakes his most ambitious project to date, The Away From Home Festival 2021. Following the postponement of his World Tour in 2020, last month Louis announced his own one-day free music event in London on the 30th August. Entirely conceived and curated by Louis himself, the festival will host 8,500 fans and will be held at the Crystal Palace Bowl.
Directed by Charlie Lightening, and featuring unprecedented access, the fly-on-the-wall short film will show Louis and his team as they plan and prepare for this momentous event. From early planning, through to the day of the show, the doc has unparalleled behind the scenes access, following Louis on the journey to putting on The Away From Home Festival.
The concert is a full 70 minute headline set from the festival, Louis’s first show in front of a live audience for 18 months. Then as the show ends, footage follows Louis backstage with his band, crew and team celebrating his return to live music.
Tickets for the global streaming event are available now from https://smarturl.it/awayfromhome
The Away From Home festival is being held in celebration of the return of live music this summer following a year and a half of Covid 19 restrictions. As his own World Tour is completely sold out, Louis wanted to make tickets for this event completely free so fans don’t have to spend any more money to enjoy live music this summer. Louis will headline the event with a special live set, with a line-up that also includes Scottish band The Snuts who recently hit No.1 on the Official Album Charts, Essex indie punk newcomers Bilk, and DJ sets from Radio1’s Jess Iszatt.
In December 2020, Louis hosted one of the biggest live stream concert events of 2020, selling over 160,000 tickets to fans in over 110 countries and raising funds for several important charities and touring crew affected by the pandemic.
