Clean Bandit and Aurora are among the artists to perform in aid of Youth Music this year, as part of the charity’s Give A Gig Week.

Each year, Youth Music asks artists, managers, promoters and other music companies to put on a gig to raise money for the charity. This year, Give A Gig Week will take place from 5-14 Apr.

Aurora’s show will take place at the Courtyard Theatre in Shoreditch on 8 Apr, while Clean Bandit will place Omeara in Southwark on 7 Apr. Tickets for both shows will be allocated as part of a prize draw – entries costing a £5 donation to the charity.

“Our lives would have turned out very different if we didn’t have access to music but we are aware we have been very fortunate in our opportunities”, says Clean Bandit. “It’s a position not everyone finds themselves in, so we see the work of Youth Music as incredibly valuable. Music really can improve lives so we are THRILLED to partner with the charity in raising money to help them with their many music-making projects across the country”.

Aurora adds: “I am so happy to have been invited to ‘give a gig’ at the Courtyard Theatre. I played there back in 2015 before my first album came out and so much has changed since then, so this is going to be a very special show”.
