Help the live music indus­try and save our grass­roots venues. The Nation­al Lot­tery’s Revive Live Tour takes place in Jan­u­ary 2022 with a wide range of artists tak­ing place at venues country-wide.

The Music Venue Trust (MVT), which rep­re­sents hun­dreds of grass­roots music venues, has announced this year’s events with tours by a diverse range of artists includ­ing KEG, The Wytch­es, Cult­dreams, Fer­ris & Sylvester, The Kut, Good Kar­ma Club, BLOCS, Strange Bones, Cal­va Louise and LibraL­i­bra. The tour will also see head­line artists, includ­ing Enter Shikari, Becky Hill, Bastille, Feed­er, Kojey Rad­i­cal, Maisie Peters and The Coral, per­form­ing spe­cial one-off shows to high­light the impor­tance of grass­roots music venues. 

Rou Reynolds of Enter Shikari, who are play­ing at Club 85 in Hitchin, says “Since we were 15 we’ve been play­ing grass­roots venues up and down the coun­try. They were our home and gave us the oppor­tu­ni­ty to devel­op into the band we are today. One of those venues was Club 85. So it’s so great to be able to return and play there again after more than a decade and help high­light the fact that these venues need sup­port espe­cial­ly right now after they’ve been sat emp­ty for near­ly two years.”

Becky Hill, who will be return­ing to Birmingham’s Sun­flower Lounge where she played as a teenag­er, says: “Play­ing this venue will most like­ly have me regress­ing to that 17 year old young woman, with her whole life ahead of her, and make me very, very grate­ful for where I am now.”
