You are here: Give a Gig

Give a Gig is Youth Music’s flagship fundraising initiative. The idea is simple: put on a music event and raise money to help us invest in more life-changing music-making for young people nationwide.

Your gig can be any size, anywhere. Since Give a Gig launched we’ve had funk, rock, classical, jazz and grime gigs, DJ sets, choirs in railway stations, a band busking at the top of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, and all sorts in between!

The next Give a Gig Week will take place from 5-14 April 2019 – but you can Give a Gig at any time of year, and we’ll support you just the same.

If you love music, you already know how life-changing it can be. Together we can transform many more young lives. Sign up to Give a Gig and we’ll support you all the way with resources and guidance on how to raise as much as possible.
