The all new Hull Venue will give local artists a platform as BBC Introducing host a top notch test event which will be first gig at the venue, and will exclusively feature local talent.
The all-standing event, which takes place on July 25th, will feature precocious post-punk outfit La Bête Blooms (of whom we at Archive Towers are particular fans), rapper Chiedu Oraka, the genre-hopping Bud Sugar and indie kids The Hubbards in what promises to be a brilliant opening event.
BBC presenters Alan Raw and David Burns will oversee proceedings as 1800 gig-goers enjoy the best of Hull music.
David Burns said: “I am passionate about giving local music the profile it deserves as there are some incredibly talented unsigned bands in Northern Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire. This special night is a fantastic opportunity to see four brilliant acts in the region’s biggest venue.”
BBC Introducing presenter Alan Raw said: “What a great opportunity to showcase the quality of our local talent, in this iconic new venue. It’s going to be an awesome show!”
Tickets for the event will cost just £5 each plus a 65p booking fee and P&P charges added to each ticket. Tickets are available from the Hull venue website – www.hull-venue.co.uk Doors will open at 6.30pm with the first band on stage at 7.30pm.
