Organisers of Britain's Bestival music event are staging a charity gig in honour of those killed and injured in a coach crash following the 2012 festival.

A bus transporting more than 50 festival-goers home from the event crashed into a tree on 10 September (12), killing the driver and two passengers and injuring many others on board.

Bestival bosses subsequently announced they would set up a fund to help those affected by the tragedy, and now they have revealed plans for a special show in Liverpool, England, the home city of the two young revellers who died.

Organiser Rob da Bank says, "We've been working to get an event set up to show some love and hopefully raise lots of money for those affected and their families and we're pleased it's in the home town of many of those involved; Liverpool.

"Thanks to everyone who has rallied round and contributed to making this event happen... please get the date in your diary and prepare to party for a very good cause."

The Bestival Benefit gig will feature funk act The Cuban Brothers and take place on 30 March (13).

Bestival takes place over three days on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England. The 2012 headliners were Stevie Wonder, Florence + the MAChine, and New Order.
