BRITs Week for War Child lineup announced

The Last Dinner Party, Keane and Sleaford Mods have been announced for this year’s BRITs Week for War Child

The special event – which has been running since 2009 in aid of the charity helping children whose lives have been left devastated by war – will see bands performing special one off gigs in very intimate surroundings

The shows will take place in the weeks surrounding this year’s BRIT Awards on March 2, as artists take over venues across the country.

As well as The Last Dinner Party, Keane and Sleaford Mods, the lineup also includes Baby Queen, You Me At Six, Aitch, Pendulum, CMAT, Cian Ducrot and Ash.

Clare Sanders Wright, Senior Music Manager at War Child, said of the event: “I am so excited to announce the lineup for BRITs Week 2024 and thankful to all of the brilliant artists donating their time to raise vital funds in aid of War Child.

“The past year is one that we will never, ever forget. Children have paid with their homes and their lives for wars they didn’t start.

“And then, there are the children who don’t make the headlines – children who might be completely forgotten.

“But there is hope. War Child help children put the pieces back together. The money raised from BRITs Week 2024 will help War Child keep children safe.”

Tickets will be allocated via a prize draw, with fans able to enter with a hope of winning a chance to see the artist of their choice.

Fans – who can enter as many times as they like to help their chances – can make a £7 donation for one entry, £15 for three, or a £30 donation for 15 entries, with all money going to War Child.

The prize draw is open now, with a limited number of tickets for each show set to go on sale at 10am on January 18 for anyone who subscribes before 3pm on Wednesday (17.01.24).

Then, tickets will go on general sale from 10am on January 19.
