Get ready for one of the most exciting events on the music industry calendar! Give a Gig 2020 kicks off from 27 March - 5 April, and it’s easy for you to get involved.  All you have to do is register your gig on our website, fill out the venue with guests and raise money for Youth Music – simple!

Since Give a Gig Week began in 2017, more than 300 fundraising gigs have taken place featuring incredible performers of all genres, including Craig David, Clean Bandit, AURORA, Newton Faulkner, Bicep, The Wombats and Madison Beer.

Youth Music will help promote your gig to a wider audience. So whether you’re a small indie band, a large choir, a solo rapper or a jazz collective, join us to celebrate music and support young musicians.
