After The 1975, Wild Beasts and more headed to a series of small shows at the beginning of last year, War Child BRITs Week returns in 2018 with another stellar line-up, helping to raise money and awareness for children affected by war and conflict.
This year will see the first show of the week hosted in Manchester since 2015, where Wolf Alice will play at the city’s Gorilla venue on 20th February. Meanwhile, London will play host to a series of other gigs, including alt-J at the Garage, also on 20th February, and Laura Marling headed to St. Giles in the Field on 17th February. Jessie Ware also brings her latest album ‘Glasshouse’ to Bush Hall on 12th February.
