Multi-Track: ‘Born to disrupt…’

Introducing Multi-Track a new into-industry platform for Bristol; which disrupts the norm by providing a fresh approach to learning for those involved with underground music and aspiring to make a career within it.

We’re currently lining up projects to start in 2017 through an innovative programme connecting music industry professionals with the future pioneers of UK underground music in Bristol. This will take the shape of artist development, performance showcases, industry seminars, cultural discussions and masterclasses.

We demystify the music business so that anyone in the city with potential – regardless of ethnicity, gender or background – can access the tools and knowledge they need to push for commercial success.

Through the guidance of the music education hub we will be working with a select number of inner-city secondary schools providing assembly tours from music industry professionals, CPD for teachers and after-school music making activities.

Over the course of the next year we will also be programming some of the UK’s most current underground artists at venues around the city. Each event will have an attached cultural discussion with industry professionals around the evolution and social significance of underground music. Artists we’ve worked with on previous projects are Goldie, Lady Leshurr, Swindle, Georgia, Eva Lazarus, Tanya Lacey, Typesun, Redders.

Sign up here to keep updated about our launch in February where you will find out more about the programme.

We’re changing

On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon, and this means we’re changing too.

Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, the charity that also runs the venue formerly known as Colston Hall. These two organisations will soon unite under one name: Bristol Beacon.
