News: Hull Venue to showcase local music

by on 19th June 2018


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 – Doors will open at 6.30pm with the first band on stage at 7.30pm.
