A host of shows announced...

Damon Albarn and Joy Crookes are amongst the performers confirmed for BRITs Week 2022.

The week-long celebration of live music finds BRIT Awards linking with War Child, with all proceeds going to charity.

The run of shows is never less than essential, recruiting stellar performers for intimate venues across London.

Opening on February 1st with pop star Anne-Marie at Lafayette in Kings Cross, it then continues with Clash favourite Joy Crookes, Bastille, Becky Hills, and Maisie Peters.

Craig David present TS5 hits London's Under The Bridge on February 17th, before Damon Albarn plays East London landmark the Troxy on February 20th.

Tickets will be available through ballot - full information can be found HERE.

Ben Anderson, Head of Live at War Child says:

“We are delighted to be working with BPI and AEG once again on another BRITs Week series. Whilst there was a temporary pause on all things live music over the past 12 months or so, there was no pause to the challenges facing children who live in conflict zones around the world. With conflict rates on the rise, and more children at risk, our work as a charity is never more needed. The whole music team and the wider War Child teams are very excited to be working on a fantastic series of gigs. There are some real treats for fans to see their favourite artists in some venues across the capital that they wouldn't normally play, and we look forward to not only the gigs but also to raising much needed funds and awareness of the fantastic work that War Child do.”

Geoff Taylor, Chief Executive BPI & BRIT Awards says:

“BRITs Week shows our industry at its collaborative best, and it’s fantastic to have it back as a key part of the build up to next year’s BRIT Awards. The event shines a light on brilliant new talent while also celebrating our established stars in great live settings that give fans a truly memorable experience – and in the process raise funds for the vital work of War Child. Our profound thanks, as ever, to our close partners on this – Mastercard, AEG and War Child – and of course to all the participating artists and their labels for their generous support.”
