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."
