Upsurge is the original music-networking gig that connects emerging Acts to the wider music industry.  Built on a solid reputation for launching new acts that have gone on to successful recording careers.  Each gig is produced to offer every act a truly hi-end concert supported by a variety of major labels and festivals. Over the years UpSurge has helped countless acts (see below) access some amazing supports and festival slots at  Glastonbury, Barclaycard British Summertime (Hyde Park), Primo Maggio Roma, The Big Feastival, BreakOut Festival (Asia) and Rock In Roma. The profile of the event is such that it’s drawn music VIP’s including 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.
