War Child teams up with the BRITS and O2 this February for a week of exclusive intimate gigs. Part of a series of War Child affiliated dates, Passport to BRITS Week will offer the rare opportunity to see some of the UK’s leading acts up close and personal – and a whole host of celebs, too.
Topping the bill is Coldplay, who will be swapping the Superbowl for the more intimate surroundings of indigo O2. Elsewhere, Professor Green and Florence + The Machine take over Hackney; Jamie xx entertains the suited and booted at concept store LN-CC; and BBC’s Sound of 2016 winner Jack Garrett continues the party at Heaven.
All in aid of charity – naturally making these gigs a celeb hotspot – you can catch your favourite acts and be safe in the knowledge that you’re also doing your bit to protect children caught in conflict. Win-win.
