Best unsigned/emerging acts currently playing the venue:

The best advice you can give the manager of unsigned/emerging artistes: Invest in some good demos – if you have access to a studio at college/school, or can link up with a local production/recording course student to help record a track or two, this really helps. A concise, short email with your band bio, URL links, and if you’ve played locally in that venue’s area before; any upcoming shows that venue has that you might be suitable for are also good to note down.
Better known acts who’ve played the venue: Ed Sheeran, Kate Nash, Bastille, The 1975, First Aid Kit, The Bronx, You Me At Six, Gallows.
