Brits 2024 performances

While the Brits is mostly a pop-focused event, that doesn't mean there won't be performances worth tuning in for if you're of the rockier persuasion. Just two years ago, Bring Me The Horizon stormed the stage with Ed Sheeran for a pummelling version of Sheeran's track Bad Habits. And last year Wet Leg took to the stage for a rousing performance of Chaise Longue.

For 2024, performers include Raye, Dua Lipa and Kylie Minogue, plus electronic music duo Jungle. 

Known for its collaborative performances, this year the Brits will also play host to star turns from Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding, and Becky Hill will join Chase & Status on stage.
