ABOUT THE PROJECT
Give a Gig is Youth Music’s biggest fundraising campaign, and sees artists across the country put on gigs to raise donations and awareness of our work. Due to the ongoing pause in live events, we’re taking Give a Gig online.
Youth Music is so excited to be partnering with Success Express and Gotobeat to host this new festival and to welcome artists from all over the world to an online stage. If you love music, you already know how life-changing it can be. Tune in, donate, and help Youth Music support the next generation of musicians.*
Registered charity number: 1075032.
