You are here: Give a Gig Week 2018 photo highlights

Girls. Beats. Bass.

Dr Martens’ Camden venue hosted an incredibly fun night with an all-girl DJ lineup which saw FEMME joined by Reprezent Radio’s La and BBC 6 Music’s Georgie Rogers.

1 day, 10 stations, 100 choirs

The second Saturday of Give a Gig Week saw more than 1800 singers (and 40+ volunteers!) descend on railway stations around the country to bring some choral cheer to people’s journeys and raise vital funds for young people’s music-making.

A huge thank you to everyone who took part, and to Network Rail for making the day possible.

Newton Faulkner

The chart-topping singer-songwriter performed a storming headline show at London’s Omeara with support from rising UK artist Reigns, and a special set from the School Ground Sounds project supported by Youth Music.

Newton made a special guest appearance at the project a few weeks before the gig, co-writing a track with the young musicians which they then performed together on the night!


House of Vans

Our friends at London’s House of Vans brought down the curtain in style, hosting an amazing grime, hip-hop and R&B showcase on the final Sunday of the week.

Nadia Rose, Frisco, Tiggs da Author and ShaoDow were joined by talented young artists from a Youth Music project run by Bollo Brook Youth Centre in West London.

Assorted highlights

It was wonderful to have such a diverse array of artists, venues, promoters and music fans on board for Give a Gig Week, including several projects funded by Youth Music around the country, and some big names like Pixie Lott, The Wombats, Dream Wife – and Craig David, who supported Youth Music all the way from Los Angeles!
