BRITs Week presented by Mastercard for War Child is back in 2022, with another incredible series of gigs, giving fans the opportunity to see some of the biggest and most exciting names in music in intimate venues across London – all whilst raising money for children whose lives have been torn apart by war. BRITs Week is produced by AEG Presents, BPI and War Child, the charity for children affected by conflict. The event series is sponsored for the first time by Mastercard, headline sponsor of The BRIT Awards.
Proceeds from the shows will help to support War Child’s work that aims to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and stay to support them through their recovery - keeping them safe, helping them learn and cope with their experiences, and equipping them with skills for the future.
The UK’s capital will once again host a stellar lineup of artists for a number of one-off gigs taking place between 1st and 20th February around The BRIT Awards 2022 with Mastercard, to celebrate another remarkable year in British music.
Multi-platinum selling star Anne-Marie will kick off BRITs Week 2022 at Lafayette on 1st February, before chart-topping pop-rockers Bastille and South London’s acclaimed singer-songwriter Joy Crookes perform a day later on the 2nd February at EartH and Omeara respectively. Taking to the same Omeara stage the following day, the 3rd February, is Ed Sheeran-signed pop singer-songwriter Maisie Peters, while north of the river the chart-topping dance sensation Becky Hill will storm the stage at Lafayette. Viral rising star Mimi Webb will also play Omeara on the 5th February. They’re joined on the line up so far by the iconic singer, songwriter, DJ and producer Craig David whose anthem-packed TS5 show will take place at Under The Bridge on the 17th February. Closing BRITs Week on the 20th February at the Troxy comes a solo performance from musician and songwriter Damon Albarn, founder member of Blur, Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad & The Queen, who will perform tracks from his new album The Nearer The Mountain, More Pure The Stream Flows, as well as selected favourites from across his songbook.
