Music charity Youth Music has announced the return of its Give A Gig Week fundraising drive for a second outing in 2018.

As with the inaugural event this year, the charity is asking artists, managers, promoters and other music companies to put on a gig to raise money for the charity. The aim is to have at least 100 live shows taking place around the country in support of Youth Music during the fundraising week. Last year, there was a total of 119 shows.

Youth Music Trustee and Head of Music at Radio 1 and 1Xtra, Chris Price, explains: “I’ve seen for myself how the lives of young people attending Youth Music projects have been transformed once they’ve had the opportunity to make music. The chance to discover and build on their musical and other talents is invaluable but, sadly, we know there are still many other young people who really need this help”.

Already signed up to lend support in 2018 are Tileyard Music, Notting Hill Music, Communion Music, Coda, ATC Management, 7digital, Rockfeedback, Key Production, the Featured Artists Coalition and the Music Managers Forum. Youth Music has also been announced as the official charity partner of the upcoming NME Awards.

Give A Gig Week 2018 will take place from 16-25 Mar. Anyone interested in taking part can find more info here.
