You are here: Give a Gig

Give a Gig Week

After an amazing first-ever Give a Gig Week in 2017, Youth Music’s flagship fundraising initiative is back.

Give a Gig Week will take place from 16-25 March 2018. We want 100 gigs to take place during Give a Gig Week. Will you be one of the hundred?

You can transform the lives of children and young people by putting on a live music event. From gigs down the pub to arena tours and festivals: any size, any genre, anywhere.

Take part in our nationwide music-making extravaganza with your friends, family and fans. Raise money to support young people experiencing incredibly challenging circumstances. We’ll help you to spread the word. Find out more: check the Give a Gig Week FAQ.
