The Big Gig: Music 4 Mental Health

We all know that music has a power to lift us through life’s low points. That’s why we’ve joined forces with some incredible organisations – and some MASSIVE musicians – for the first Music 4 Mental Health initiative.

Alongside the #IAMWHOLE campaign, The Mix and YMCA, we’re chuffed to be involved in the debut Music 4 Mental Health showcase, taking place at London’s Roundhouse on November 18th.

The lineup is HUGE. We kicked off by announcing Anne-Marie and Olly Murs, and now we’ve added James Arthur, Ella Eyre and some fella called Ed Sheeran to the bill.

“As an organisation that has always worked closely with the music community, we’re delighted to be a part of Music 4 Mental Health this year. Suicide remains the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK, but we know that music has a power to help us through life’s low points and we’re excited to be working with some incredible artists to raise awareness of the services that are available for young people who may be struggling.”

Simon Gunning, CEO of CALM

General sale tickets will be available at 8am on Friday September 7th via Keep up to date on all things Music 4 mental Health via #M4MH on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
