Matty Healy and co. join the likes of Craig David and Basement Jaxx in a series of very special London shows...

The 1975 are among the HUGE list of artists playing tiny shows across London next month in aid of the charity War Child. 

Taking place in London between February 14 and 24 in the lead up to the BRIT Awards, the War Child BRITs Week gives fans the opportunity to see the biggest names in music in intimate venues across London – all whilst raising money for children whose lives have been torn apart by war. 

The 1975 lead the lineup with a show for just 500 people at the The Dome venue in Tufnell Park, having previously hinted at an upcoming tiny gig via their Twitter feed.

Other acts taking part this year include the legendary comeback king Craig David with his world renowned TS5 party, BRITs Critics Choice winner Rag 'N' Bone Man, dance kings Basement Jaxx playing their only live UK date this year and BRITs Critics Choice nominee Anne-Marie among many others.
