VENUES WIN THE LOTTERY, AGAIN
5/12/22

 

The National Lottery’s Revive Live Tour will return this summer in the U.K. Done in partnership with Music Venue Trust,  The National Lottery will again underwrite the full touring and production costs of artists participating as part of a commitment to the grassroots music sector.

Full details of all artists participating, dates of individual performances and the venues hosting shows will be announced in the near future.

“This is a fantastic partnership that has already delivered incredible support to new and emerging artists at a vital stage of their career,” MVT CEO Mark Dayvd said. “We are delighted to be working with The National Lottery again this summer to create even more brilliant opportunities to Revive Live and reconnect our communities to the music and musicians they love.”

Launched last summer, the National Lottery contributed £1M to directly underwrite  touring and production costs of 278 live shows at 138 grassroots music venues staged between June and September. In January, a second phase saw another 179 shows at 140 grassroots music venues supported by National Lottery Revive Live.

Nigel Railton, Chief Executive of National Lottery operator Camelot, said, “The National Lottery is very happy to be able to work with Music Venue Trust again as we head into the summer.  The previous National Lottery's Revive Live Tours have been extremely successful and a new round of live shows will hopefully continue the much-needed support for the grassroots music sector, while bringing communities together again.”

The money for this initiative comes from a National Lottery promotional fund. It is not funded by money allocated for National Lottery Good Causes or by Camelot.
