Alt-pop quartet The Big Moon have joined The National Lottery’s United By Music tour, in collaboration with Music Venue Trust. They’ll head out to play ten intimate shows across the UK to raise awareness and support for some of our most treasured grassroots venues.

Speaking about the tour, The Big Moon’s vocalist and guitarist Juliette Jackson says: “We are so excited to go out on this tour! These smaller venues are so crucial to the UK’s musical landscape - they give new artists a vital space to learn and hone their cradt and enter the world of live music at an accessible level. We need to protect these places to keep new music coming.”

Also joining the ranks in support of grassroots music venues are British 2Tone legend Rhoda Dakar, Glaswegian post-punks VLURE, and Tiktok sensation Michael Aldag, while the likes of Blossoms, Cat Burns and Metronomy have all recently hit the road to play local shows.

With one grassroots music venue closing each week, highlighting the essential part they play in the industry pipeline and local culture is more important than ever.
