A host of big names including The Last Dinner Party, Sleaford Mods, You Me At Six, Ash and Keane will all play intimate gigs in small venues across the country in aid of this year’s BRITs Week for War Child.

The charity event – which actually runs for two weeks – will take place from February 19 to March 4, timed to coincide with the BRIT Awards ceremony on March 2. The charity has been staging similar events, in which fans are given the chance to see headlining artists in a more intimate setting, since 2009, with money raised from the shows helping children whose lives have been affected by war.

Past performers have included Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Florence + the Machine, Bastille, Idles, The 1975, alt-J, Jessie Ware, Yungblud, Anne-Marie and Mabel.

Scroll down for the full list of artists, dates and venues for this year’s event.

Keane will be playing at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on February 20.

Clare Sanders Wright, Senior Music Manager at War Child, said: “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.”
