Off Axis works by connecting artists and allowing them to host one another at gigs in their respective hometowns – solving the problem of finding meaningful and well attended shows in other towns and cities.
We believe that Off Axis can offer unprecedented opportunities for artists and fans alike, and can help to build a stronger and more vibrant independent live music sector across the country.
• It will allow you to build a national fanbase in a way never before possible
• It will open up opportunities in towns and cities that previously you may never have considered (Off Axis currently works across 67 towns and cities in the UK)
• It will allow you to host brilliant artists in your hometown, which in turn can help you to bolster your local fanbase
Off Axis uses a unique credit system to ensure hard working artists get out as much as they put in.
To be part of the Off Axis network you must be able to produce a hometown with a good audience, and be able to offer a support slot to an artist from another town or city at that show.
Please note – Off Axis is FREE to use – it has been developed by Un-Convention with the support of the PRS Foundation, Innovate UK, Joining The Dots Fund, Arts Council England, The Musicians Union, and Wigwam Acoustics.
Off Axis is also non-exclusive. By this we mean that just because you have signed up to Off Axis it does not mean you are obliged to use if for all your shows, some artists might use it regularly, others only once in a while.
