Austen Cruickshank, Senior Live Music Manager at War Child says We are thrilled to be working with BPI, AEG and Mastercard once again on another BRITs Week series. The 2023 shows feel particularly special for us as we also celebrate our 30th anniversary as a charity and look back on everything we have been able to do for children affected by conflict around the world, thanks to the unwavering energy and passion of the music industry. With conflict rates on the rise, and more children at risk, our work as a charity is truly never more needed so we are excited to bring this amazing roster of talent to some incredible venues across London and the UK, to create more unforgettable music moments and raise much needed funds to support our work now, and for the future.”

Maggie Crowe OBE, BPI’s Director of Events & Charities says “Announcing this brilliant line up with more names joining the class of BRITs Week 2023 early in the New Year is just joyous. Music is therapy for the soul and listening to amazing artists of all styles and backgrounds in intimate venues is exactly how this special annual event works to raise much needed funds for War Child – in what will be their 30th anniversary year.  Our thanks to all the artists and their teams and to our valued friends and partners for making BRITs Week possible.”

Simon Jones, Senior Vice President, Live Music International, at AEG says “Bringing back BRITs Week each year is always exciting, and for 2023, we’re going even further afield across the UK to bring very special underplay shows to people.  Our AEG team and partners at BPI, War Child and Mastercard have all clubbed together to help create another incredible series, for what is a fantastic industry fixture year in year out, raising much needed funds for a very important charity, War Child.  The line-up keeps growing, and there’s even more to come, so keep your eyes peeled.”
