Bastille, Sigrid, Declan McKenna - this year's BRITs Week for Warchild shows have been announced

The BRIT Awards have announced their BRITs Week Together With O2 For War Child run of shows for next month, and it's - well - it's a bunch of men again, is what it is.

Held for a very worthy cause, last year's shows raised an estimated £502,000, so it's obviously a very good thing. But, y'know, hardly the diverse list of British talent we'd expect or hope for. Coming after criticism for this year's list of BRIT Awards nominations - vastly dominated by male acts - it only further highlights some of the systematic problems in the British music industry.

Held between 8th and 22nd February, there are some exciting shows. Bastille will bring their acclaimed Reorchestrated show to The London Palladium, Yungblud will play the impossibly small Camden Assembly, Declan McKenna will be at Islington Assembly Hall, Sigrid will take on Omeara and Bombay Bicycle Club will play Bush Hall. Intimate shows ahoy!

A prize draw is open now and closes at 23:59 on Monday, 3rd February. To enter, fans must pick their artist of choice and make a £5 donation. There'll also be a limited number of tickets on sale from 9am this Friday, 17th January. For Bastille and Catfish and the Bottlemen shows, the prize draw will open after those limited tickets have sold out.

The shows read:

February
8 Catfish and the Bottlemen, Exhibition London
10 Yungblud, Camden Assembly
11 Jack Savoretti, Omeara
12 Declan McKenna, Islington Assembly Hall
13 Louis Tomlinson, Scala
14 Tom Walker, Omeara
16 Sigrid, Omeara
16 Bombay Bicycle Club, Bush Hall
17 Gang of Youths, Omeara
19 Tom Grennan, Bush Hall
21 Nothing But Thieves, The Dome
22 Bastille Reorchestrated, The London Palladium

Are you ready for a new favourite band? North London's Sorry are low-key cult faves with an immense banger-ratio, and a stonking debut album.
