MIllie turner + jetlines
We're thrilled to be pairing up with Ace Hotel Shoreditch and HOOP to bring you a taste of what Wake Up Gigs are all about - enjoying live music with an audience of all ages.
Wake Up Gigs showcase new artists for parents to enjoy the best live bands and artists and the gig experience with their families.
We’re thrilled to bring Jetlines to the Wake Up Gigs stage, with a further support act to be announced. Each artist will play 30-40 minute sets in the stunning surroundings of the Ace Hotel rooftop venue.
Child friendly stuff: buggy parking space, soft play area, colouring in classic album covers, balloons, glitter painting, fully stocked baby changing facilities
Parent friendly stuff: amazing live music, friendly people, licensed bar, food available, easily accessible venue with lifts
Our Ace Hotel shows are the mini version of what a full Wake Up Gig would entail but feedback from parents is that they really enjoy the calm vibes and stunning views from the venue and the live music is the perfect accompaniment on a Sunday afternoon. The gig will take place at the Ace Hotel in their fantastic event space with skyline views of London. This is smaller than our previous venues, so tickets are limited. Tickets are £7 for parents and free for children.
Millie Turner is a homegrown 18-year-old Hackney kid who’s an artist in every sense of the word. About two years ago, she swapped a paintbrush for a recording studio. Still very early days in her music career, Turner is proving she has a knack from bringing out the message of empowerment in her music. She wants you to feel “feelings” both great and small. Because of this warm sentiment, many music critics praise her work. Totally worthy based on her output, which belies a lot of those in a similar lane to her.
Jetlines are a trio from Nottingham UK. Originally created by Jess ( Singer/ Songwriter for Jetlines ) who had been writing and performing solo for quite some time, but after getting together with her two pals ( Ned and Tom ) they soon became said trio.
Jess draws her creative writing inspiration from real life events and with the guys they create a similar atmospheric sound to Bon Iver, aiming to create music that takes their listeners to a different place - Some sort of relaxed escapism
'Bridges' their debut EP was released December 17' shortly followed by single Parachute which are available across all major platforms
