NEKO Trust are building a network of artist ambassadors who will take charitable donations from those lucky enough to be put onto the guestlist of their shows. The charity's previous guestlist scheme raised £400,000 throughout UK shows alone. Our most recent ambassadors to join the team are the brilliant Nothing But Thieves.
NEKO BUS TOUR
Neko are embarking on tours of Schools, Colleges and Universities to spread our message. (Link to bus tour). The tour takes place annually, we hit the road for three, weeks visiting as many educational institutions as possible bringing with us a mix of industry professionals, including: tour managers, sound engineers, lighting engineers, stage designers, promoters, productions managers, agents and ticketing companies. They will be telling their stories of life on the road and of the opportunities that exist in their respective fields.
NEKO also plans to establish an yearly event called HULaBaLOO, which is a one day experience arranged to give students a first-hand, practical experience of working at a live music event.
They will be provided with real time, on-the-job learning. Each of the disciplines will be run by the students whilst being overseen by industry mentors
