The initial line-up for next year’s BRITs Week has been announced, with Beabadoobee, Bob Vylan, Cavetown, Easy Life, Frank Turner, Kojey Radical, Metronomy, Rina Sawayama, Sea Girls, The Hunna, The Snuts and Years & Years all set to play one-off intimate shows around the UK in the run-up to this year’s BRIT Awards in February.

As ever, tickets for the shows will be given out via prize draws, with entry fees used to raise money for the War Child charity. A limited number of tickets will also go on sale tomorrow, but only to those who sign up here today.

“Announcing this brilliant line up, with more names joining the class of BRITs Week 2023 early in the new year, is just joyous”, says Maggie Crowe, Director of Events & Charities as BRITs organiser the BPI. “Music is therapy for the soul and listening to amazing artists of all styles and backgrounds in intimate venues is exactly how this special annual event works to raise much needed funds for War Child – in what will be their 30th anniversary year”.

War Child’s Senior Live Manager Austen Cruickshank adds: “The 2023 shows feel particularly special for us as we also celebrate our 30th anniversary as a charity and look back on everything we have been able to do for children affected by conflict around the world, thanks to the unwavering energy and passion of the music industry”.

“With conflict rates on the rise and more children at risk”, he goes on, “our work as a charity is truly never more needed so we are excited to bring this amazing roster of talent to some incredible venues across London and the UK, to create more unforgettable music moments and raise much needed funds to support our work now, and for the future”.
