This July, Bigga Fish will return for The Champion's Tour - a tour organised by its young volunteers for young people. It will begin on 20th July in Newcastle and wrap up on the 25th July in London.
Headlined by Chip (formerly known as Chipmunk) and with performances from MOBO winner Lethal B and hotly tipped Lady Leshurr, it is set to be a show to remember!
Bigga Fish run in conjunction with independent charity V inspired and is a non-profit youth organization dedicated to 14-21 year olds. It trains young people in marketing, promotions and event planning through the organisation of music events for young people and weekly workshops called Fish Club that take place in East London.
Since its inception over 12 years ago, Bigga Fish have accumulated the largest street team in London and have worked with over 2,000 young people for a collective audience of over 80,000! It gives kids a positive outlet that they may not have otherwise had and they are encouraged to be creative and expressive through music, all the while learning key skill.
The enjoyable and educational experience that has been commended by the likes of Ms Dynamite, Bigga Fish is quickly become one of the best urban events around and is known for bringing homegrown talent to the forefront - past performers have included breakthrough artists Tinie Tempah, Katy B and Wretch 32 to name a few.
Bigga Fish have also offered up the opportunity for up-and-coming talent from regions of the tour to have the chance to perform at the event in their hometown.
