The 1975, Jess Glynne and Bring Me The Horizon head BRITs Week line-up

The 1975, Jess Glynne, Bring Me The Horizon and Anne-Marie are among acts set to play intimate shows for War Child BRITs Week Together with O2, which is returning for its fifth year. 

War Child UK raised an estimated £650,000 last year through BRITs Week, which is produced by AEG Presents, BPI and War Child, the charity for children affected by conflict, together with O2.

The line-up is completed by Idles, You Me At Six, AJ Tracey, Nick Mulvey, Enter Shikari, Frank Turner, Mabel, Jake Bugg, DJ Semtex & Friends and Tom Odell. The shows will take place from February 11-22. 

Jim Benner, global music lead, War Child UK, said: “It’s amazing to see the music industry coming together once again to support children affected by conflict across the world. We’re looking forward to creating more wonderful moments and as ever we’re overwhelmed by the incredible support of some of the best artists making music right now.

"In 2019 we’re celebrating 10 years of partnering with O2 and with their support and the continued dedication of music fans together we’ve changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of the world’s most vulnerable children.”

To enter the prize draw for the chance to win tickets to see the artist of their choice, fans can make a £5 donation to War Child here. The draw closes at 23:59pm on Monday, February 4. 

There will also be a limited number of tickets on sale from Friday, January 18, and also exclusively to O2 customers via Priority Tickets from 9am on Wednesday, January 16.

War Child BRITs Week will be partnering with Twickets across all shows as their ethical resale partner to ensure tickets for the shows can only be sold at face value.

Geoff Taylor, chief executive BPI & BRIT Awards, said: “It’s always great to welcome back BRITs Week, which has now become such an integral part of the build up to The BRIT Awards with Mastercard each year, and which also raises much needed funds for the vital work of War Child. Working with our valued partners AEG, O2, and War Child - we continually strive to develop the event as a celebration of diverse British music, showcasing the next wave of exciting new talent and celebrating another phenomenal year for British music.”

Simon Jones, SVP of live music international, AEG Presents, added: “It’s fantastic to see BRITs Week going into 2019 and its strongest line up since we began five years ago. 

"These shows have become a great industry fixture around the BRIT Awards, and all the artists, managers, and labels coming together working with BPI, AEG and War Child to raise a huge amount of money for children in conflict is a really wonderful thing that should be celebrated, and long may it continue!”
