Building sustainable careers in the music industry

Next Generation Sounds is about championing young bands aged 16-25. Our mission is clear: we're here to empower emerging musicians like you, helping you forge sustainable and fulfilling careers in the music industry. You'll receive free rehearsal and recording time, access to workshops, and tailored mentoring from music industry professionals. And we're not stopping there; we're creating a vibrant community of musicians who collaborate and thrive, right here in Brighton and beyond.

Applications to the project are open to young bands/artists aged 16-25, in and around the Brighton and Hove area.
We're particularly looking to support young musicians who can’t afford to get their music professionally recorded.
