BRITs Week shows announced
Ivor Novello-winning songwriter Tom Odell, festival headliners Bring Me The Horizon and critically acclaimed BRIT nominee Jake Bugg have been announced to play intimate shows for BRITs Week with War Child, together with O2.
War Child BRITs Week returns for its fifth year and strongest series of gigs yet, giving fans the opportunity to see the biggest names in music in intimate venues across London – all whilst raising money for children whose lives have been torn apart by war. War Child UK raised an estimated £650,000 through BRITs Week shows last year, a significant increase year on year by the organisation.
Geoff Taylor, Chief Executive BPI & BRIT Awards, said, “it’s always great to welcome back BRITs Week, which has now become such an integral part of the build up to The BRIT Awards with Mastercard each year, and which also raises much needed funds for the vital work of War Child. Working with our valued partners AEG, O2, and War Child – we continually strive to develop the event as a celebration of diverse British music, showcasing the next wave of exciting new talent and celebrating another phenomenal year for British music”
