Dont Pay To Play Part 2

09 July 2010

Well it was our first Dont Pay To Play on the 4th June, and we were so pleased with how it went, we wanted to do another one!

Your chance to play and listen to the city's hottest new music at Manchester's most unique city centre space.

If you're a musician nowadays it can be a real struggle to find somewhere to play, and an audience to play to. Some venues make you sell tickets in order to play, and in the worst cases, you end up paying the venue! Well here at NOISE we think this is just plain wrong.

NOISELAB handed the space over to young musicians and bands, offering a venue to play, a sound system, and an audience - for nowt, nadda, nothing - FREE!

Check out the 'Don't Pay To Play II' video (35 min):
