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.


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.
