BACARDÍ Rum releases tickets today for a hotly anticipated show with Bugzy Malone in his hometown of Manchester on Saturday 23rd June.

Proceeds from all ticket sales will go to the award-winning non-profit Lonely Whale Foundation.
In 1862, in the city of Santiago de Cuba, founder Don Facundo BACARDÍ Massó revolutionized the spirits industry when he created a light-bodied rum with a particularly smooth taste – BACARDÍ. The unique taste of BACARDÍ rum inspired cocktail pioneers to invent some of the world’s most famous recipes including the BACARDÍ Mojito, the BACARDÍ Daiquirí, the BACARDÍ Cuba Libre, the BACARDÍ®Piña Colada and the BACARDÍ Presidente.
BACARDÍ rum is the world’s most awarded spirit, with more than 674 awards for quality, taste and innovation. Today, BACARDÍ rum is made mainly in Puerto Rico where it is crafted to ensure the taste remains the same today as it did when it was first blended in 1862.
Bugzy Malone will host the show as part of a new nationwide BACARDÍ music campaign called Do What Moves You, with support on the night from rising MC Hardy Caprio, BBC Radio 1Xtra’s DJ Semtex, and Manchester rappers Lady Ice and Stef Smith.
Manchester born wordsmith Bugzy Malone is fast developing a reputation as one of the UK’s brightest independent grime talents. Dubbed ‘The evil genius’, Bugzy has amassed a loyal fan base through his heartfelt lyrics and knockout delivery displayed in EPs Walk with Me, Facing Time and most recently, King of the North.
To coincide with the tickets going on sale, BACARDÍ releases exclusive new footage of Bugzy Malone filmed in Manchester, where he reveals the creative inspirations and influences that have shaped his musical journey. Video will be available shortly.
