Yuck, Embers and King Charles are just some of the acts announced for a string of gigs in support of War Child.

The Tune Up festival will see the bands play a series of one-off gigs, which will take place in Brighton, London, Manchester and Edinburgh. It is organised in conjunction with Tune Hotels.

"Children suffer terrible damage in war zones around the world from Afghanistan to Syria. War Child helps children to overcome their trauma and find their feet in a world turned upside down by violence," the charity's CEO, Rob Williams said. "Music, musicians and audiences have always been a big source of energy for this work, and we are delighted that, with help from Tunes Hotels, we will be able to reach more children in crisis."
