beabadoobee has shared news that she will be a 10th Anniversary Ambassador for Independent Venue Week, and will play a special show in celebration of it.
As part of an annual seven day celebration of independent music and artist venues in the UK, beabadoobee will play a special BRITS Week for War Child show. It is set to take place at London’s Lafayette on 3rd February, with tickets available through a prize draw raising money for War Child.
Speaking about her new role, beabadoobee says: “I’m extremely proud to be an Ambassador of Independent Venue Week. These venues are so important at giving young emerging artists a starting point in their career. I will never forget my first gig at The Boileroom in Guildford where I jumped on stage with my friends for 3 songs or my first proper beabadoobee headline show at the Old Pancras Church in Kings Cross. My first and earliest gigs will always be some of my most precious memories. We need to do our best to keep these venues up and running and I want to help shine a light on how important independent venues really are to artists’ careers.”
It follows the news last month that beabadoobee will support Taylor Swift for a string of dates on the North American leg of ‘The Eras Tour’, following the acclaim for her sophomore album, ‘Beatopia’. You can read Dork’s five-star review of the album here.
