A FREE gig for youngsters in south London has been boosted by another batch of chart-storming names.

Scottish songstress Nina Nesbitt (read her interview in this week’s Vibe here), who is on course to top the charts with her debut album Peroxide this weekend, will headline NCS Yes at Brixton Academy on Saturday, March 1.

Also added to the bill are Olivia Sebastianelli (Vibe’s also chatted to her – read it here) and Colour the Atlas, while Miquita Oliver and Will Best have been confirmed to host.

They join Neon Jungle (Vibe’s interview with the band’s Jess is here), Joel Compass, Elli Ingram and Swiss Lips.

The 5,000-capacity gig is organised by the National Citizen Service – which gives 16 and 17-year-olds the chance to develop new skills – and will honour inspiration young people in six categories.

Nina Nesbitt, Tinie Tempah, Tom Daley and Gareth Bale are among those nominated, with voting being conducted by 16 to 18-year-olds at NCSyes.co.uk until February 24.

The website is also the place to go to try to get your hands on free tickets and where the event will be streamed live.

The gig is due to be broadcast on 4Music.

Island records are just promoting her. Island records needs to sell her music to make money so give a free gig in hoping some download the music. It's not free just promoting.
