The VO5 NME Awards 2017 takes place at London’s O2 Academy Brixton and celebrates the best in music over the last 12 months and is voted for by NME readers.
The Bands 4 Refugees supergroup in all their glory, featuring Sam, Dom and Harry from Peace, Austin from Swim Deep, Isaac from Slaves, Pixie Geldof, Joe from Circa Waves, Izzy from Black Honey and Olly from Years & Years.
Charli XCX will also perform with the group at the VO5 NME Awards 2017 tomorrow (Wednesday 15), but missed rehearsal due to other commitments in LA.
Peace's Harry Koisser co-ordinated the group for the performance, after appearing in the Bands 4 Refugees band at their three covers shows before Christmas.
Isaac Holman gives Dom Boyce a big old bear hug.
Sam Koisser fiddles with the mixing desk while his brother belts out the vocals in the background.
Austin Williams gets practicing his keys.
The Bands 4 Refugees rehearsals seem to have been fuelled mostly by lollies.
And Isaac's favourite, Stella.
Isaac takes a little rest. Learning how to play classic covers is tough work, after all.
The gang divvy up their parts and work out arrangements.
Spirits were high as things started to come together.
