Following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and the displacement of more than a million Ukrainians from their home country, tQ is putting together a continuous guide of charity releases, events, livestreams, fundraisers and resources from the music community to help those affected.
We'll continue to update this post as more material comes through. If you are a record label, artist or promoter that is raising money in some way for organisations helping those affected by the war, feel free to let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
