The Event

RISING is a platform that showcases the very best in new music, whilst raising vital funds for War Child UK. Created by London music promoters, Hot Vox, RISING has raised over £250,000 for War Child UK through gigs, showcases & live-streamed performances.

Now, RISING is evolving into a new, national fundraising competition, seeking out the best RISING talent and providing them with opportunities to push their career to the next level, all whilst raising awareness and vital funds for War Child UK.

RISING will see artists submit a live performance video filmed exclusively for War Child UK. Music fans will then be able to tune in from the comfort of their own homes whilst claiming creative rewards in return for their donations.

The Top 20 artists that raise the most money for War Child UK will have the opportunity to present their music to our expert panel of music industry professionals, which includes festival bookers, booking agents, producers, DJ’s, radio presenters and music journalists.

The panel is tasked with choosing our winner, who will receive a HUGE stack of prizes.

Who will be crowned the best in RISING talent?

Kick is a London-based Alt Rock band with raw, emotional originals and an energetic, infectious stage presence.

“At last, a band with the spirit and raw excitement of ’77 wrapped in the craziness and tragedy of ’23. Hirsute punk at its finest”-Barry Cain, Vive Le Rock.

“…love, sex and general teenage angst, dealt with such swagger and attitude that it’s hard not to get wrapped up in it all. Teenage problems have never felt more important than when Kick sing about them.”-Alison McLeod-Clarke, Substack.

Kick have played the O2 Academy Islington, The Lexington, The Camden Club, among others. Kick’s successful debut release and a run of exciting London gigs is the start of something special.
