From your bedroom to the stage

We're creating a space where electronic musicians can practise their live performance skills, with an open-minded and inclusive audience.

Manchester is full of open mic nights dedicated mostly to singers and guitarists.
Currently there are no places that give electronic musicians the same opportunity, every month.
So we're creating it.

How to participate

Live performers

If you want to perform live, submit an application. We'll come back to you soon, and we'll give you details of your performance slot if we managed to give you one.

Music makers

If you want to hear your song played in the venue, send it to us and we'll put it on.
We'll play the submitted songs before, in-between and after the live performances, so make sure to be here on time so you don't miss your track!

Music lovers

Just come and enjoy the live performances, we need you to support the local Manchester music scene!

Need help with your live performance?

In partnership with the Manchester Ableton User Group and the Manchester Electronic Collective, Spirit Studios is kindly offering artists a unique opportunity to hone their live performances in the Charlie Jones Live Venue.
