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 has evolved 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.
“War Child Rising is a brilliant opportunity to raise money for a wonderful organisation while at the same time giving artists a chance to perform in a high quality filmed studio environment.
I’m really happy myself and the band got involved, it’s been great to be part of such a big fundraiser and also end up with something to share with your fans too.
I was so buzzed to win and have the chance to play at Standon Calling. Get involved if you can!”
