What about house parties and busking?


Although they’re not directly within the scope of the campaign, we believe they play an important role in improving the music scene.
House parties would provide creative, genuine, personal DIY alternatives to bad ‘exposure’ gigs, which would, in turn:

  • Allow bands to connect better with audiences through more intimate shows
  • Maintain fan discovery through audience sharing and cross-pollination
  • Make it easier to say ‘no’ to bad gigs

You don’t need a venue to get exposure: a good busking spot is its own promotion, and the artist gets 100% of the proceeds.
