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?

Meet the lineup

Lord Bug

getEventBio(), 250, true)?>

With the name Lord Bug, the Nottingham born and bred singer-songwriter Libby makes a nod to subverting gender norms and her queerness. Accordingly, her music explores themes around feminity and masculinity, growing up queer and catholic, as well as the textural landscape of her relationships with family, friends and lovers. Since moving away from home to Oxford for university, she hasn’t stopped writing and is continually inspired by female fronted artists such as Remi Wolf, Nilufer Yanya, Clairo, Billie Marten and Lianne La Havas. In live performance she is joined by her fantastic 8-piece band, who blend jazz and folk with her indie-pop roots, hyponotising you to sway and swoon.
