Give a Give Week launch party

The week started out with a bang with our launch party at Omeara, featuring brilliant sets from Hannie, Eugene McGuinness, Dan the Man (The Wombats) and Zaya. It was a night filled with eclectic sounds ranging from cinematic bedroom folk to upbeat pop and jazzy, spine-tingling vocals.

Madison Beer

The multi-talented musician Madison Beer performed an intimate show at London’s Countyard Theatre.

Supporting artist Ije Amaechi took part in a Youth Music funded project run by Hertfordshire Music Service and now works as a music leader. We’re really proud to see a young musician making such great progress!

Clean Bandit

The energy at Omeara on day three of Give a Gig Week was rip-roaring! Clean Bandit performed an amazing set including their award-winning song Symphony.

Ida Vallens, who came through a Youth Music project at AudioActive in Brighton, supported the trio with an ethereal electronic pop set.

AURORA

The room was packed and it was all positive vibes from the Norwegian singer-songwriter AURORA. The support sets from rising stars Rhys Lewis and Natalie McCool were a perfect addition to the night.

Natalie now works as a music leader with Brighter Sound in Manchester having come up through a Youth Music project there - another great success story.

Hard Rock Cafe

The iconic London venue hosted an incredibly fun night with four amazing and varied rock bands: Killit, Vambo, Izzy Thomas, and The Dark Light. The music definitely had everyone in the room rocking out!

On the night Youth Music was also presented with a $5000 cheque to support our work - a huge thanks to the Hard Rock Heals Foundation for their continued generous support.
