Upsurge is the original music-networking gig that connects emerging Acts to the wider music industry.  Built on a solid reputation for supporting new live music, each gig draws from a diverse palette of Commercial Rock, Pop, Dance and Urban music. Upsurge are produced to offer a truly hi-end live concert and PR for the acts with each gig supported by a variety of major labels, festivals and booking agents to help acts access everything from support offers and slots at the UK’s and European biggest festivals.  The success of the event has drawn music VIP’s such as Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys), Chris Martin (Coldplay), Mark Ronson, Adele, Sam Smith and Paloma Faith – to mention but a few.

Formerly The Barfly, this corner venue has been a Camden institution for years, welcoming Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand and Bombay Bicycle Club among the many bands who’ve played London gigs here. It was one of the main hangouts during the Britpop and grunge years.
