Sofar Sounds and GigPig collaborate to create a spectacular Manchester showcase

The UK’s fastest-growing hospitality marketplace, GigPig and one of the best intimate show facilitators, Sofar Sounds, have collaborated to curate a live music event on May 21st.

The event will take place at one of Manchester’s most iconic Grade 1 buildings and the event will be the biggest Sofar show in Manchester to date.

Included on the billing will be some of the incredible artists who are using the GigPig platform, but keep your eyes peeled for further information, as key details about the Manchester venue will be released 36 hours before the event.

Each artist will perform with no opener or headline to promote an equal opportunity to all those involved, and the company has facilitated shows with James Bay, Hozier, Emeli Sandé, and Wolf Alice.

The anticipation for the event is built by only knowing the name of the artist as they take to the stage, giving listeners ample opportunity to unearth new talent.

 And that’s all that can be said regarding details for now. 

Sofar Sounds curates some of the most exciting live performances available, with some exceptional upcoming talent performing their unique output, which allows fans to fully immerse themselves in the music.

It's a series of live shows like no other. 

These performances are housed in small-capacity venues across 400 cities globally, as Sofar Sounds global music community connects artists and audiences.

The core values of the two businesses align perfectly in supporting and nurturing emerging artists by facilitating opportunities to perform on stages across the country to connect people through the joy of music.

The passion that GigPig and Sofar Sounds have for live music, with the belief that any venue can be a stage, will ensure that it will be an unforgettable experience. 

Tickets are £15 each and can be booked for May 21st on the Sofar Sounds events page
