NCS With Rudimental, Clean Bandit & The 1975

NCS With Rudimental, Clean Bandit & The 1975

On the 4th May 2013, Hundreds of 16 and 17 year olds from around the UK traveled to Manchester to attend a free gig at Manchester’s Gorilla featuring chart toppers Rudimental, Clean Bandit and Manchester’s own The 1975 which was partly run by six teenagers who won the chance to ‘Run The Show’.

The gig was created by National Citizen Service (NCS) to highlight the opportunities that they are providing for 16 and 17 year olds in the UK.

The 1975 kicked off the show on home soil with their top 20 chart pleaser ‘Chocolate’ then they showcased their more raunchy side with EP ‘Sex’ to a cheering crowd of ecstatic teenagers.

Next up on the bill were Clean Bandit playing a short selection of their deep house hits nicely picking up the audience and throwing them in a frenzy ready for Rudimental to finish what the 1975 and Clean Bandit had started.

Rudimental arrived on stage to an over excited packed venue of screaming fans and they didn’t disappoint their audience perfectly performing their no1 singles ‘Feel The Love’ and ‘Waiting All Night’.

During the set Rudimental encouraged the teen crowd to follow their dreams and use the services of originations like NCS to get to where they want to be in their lives.

The gig was only a snap shot of the services NCS have to offer young people and here at Gigs and Festivals we wish them all the best with their ongoing projects.
