Get Loud 2019 – An Unmissable Evening of Live Music

After last year’s success, Get Loud returned for an incredible 2019 edition – serving up 12 intimate shows up and down the UK with an eclectic mix of artists across genres and styles – all coming together to raise awareness of the phenomenal power of music therapy.

After last year’s success, Nordoff Robbins’ Get Loud returned for a memorable 2019 edition – serving up 12 intimate shows up and down the UK with an eclectic mix of artists across genres and styles, all coming together to raise awareness of the phenomenal work Nordoff Robbins does and the power of music therapy.

In London, we had three standout shows in venues across the capital. One of the most anticipated returns of the year, Louise Redknapp brought her catalogue of hits to Omera – from Eternal favourites to solo moves. Over at XOYO, MNEK delivered a modern pop spectacle – bringing those arena-filling sounds to the club for a sizzling performance, while at The Trinity in Harlow, Scouting For Girls took a trip down memory lane playing at the venue where it all started for them.

 

Down on the coast, we had more amazing Get Loud gigs. In Portsmouth, one of the nation’s modern wordsmiths Frank Turner played an unforgettable show at Wedgewood Rooms – sitting nicely ahead of his upcoming UK, US and European tour. In Brighton the iconic 10cc dropped classic after classic at Komedia for one of the smallest shows of their platinum-selling career while up and coming talent Hollie Cook took over The Prince Albert for an intimate show.

 

At the exact same moment in Liverpool, Sigala was spinning his own way to the top with a display of singalong hits that had The Loft buzzing. Birmingham played host to a sold-out display from Akala whose hard-hitting takes and visceral force left his mark at the Hare & Hounds. Equally turning things up to 11 were Skindred, heading to Middlesbrough for a packed evening of titan-sized anthems, leaving t-shirts flying in the air. 

‘Raise Your Hands’ screamed Reef, and the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds responded with gusto with a storming set from the riffing kings leaving fans heading home with smiles across every face. It was a similar story up in Scotland, with the legendary Nazareth running through an impressive back-catalogue in Dunfermline while the Al Murray-featuring supergroup fun brigade Fat Cops entertained the fans at The Garage in Glasgow.

With activities happening across the UK, Get Loud was once again a defining day of live music and entertainment – shining a light on the amazing work Nordoff Robbins does across the UK to support those who need it the most to use the power of music therapy to enrich lives.

Julie Whelan, chief executive of Nordoff Robbins said: “Campaigns like Get Loud are hugely important in helping us raise awareness of our work and ensuring that we can reach all those who need our support. We know how powerful our music therapy can be – offering communication, connection and in some cases, a vital lifeline to many people. We thank all of the wonderful artists for taking part in Get Loud in 2019 because they have helped spread the message of our work not only in the places where people need us most, but all over the UK.”
