Off The Record is all about NEW music, showcasing different artistic styles and innovative ideas. Following the daytime conference, which features discussions and panels from the likes of Everything Everything, Tim Burgess, art director Brian Cannon (Oasis) and photographer David Drake (The 1975) and many more, Off The Record Live will cast a powerful spotlight on the best new music, hosting showcase performances by a host of emerging artists across 6 legendary performance venues within 5 minutes walk from each other

The cutting edge line-up has been chosen by national curators such as Guy Garvey, Huw Stephens, John Kennedy, Tim Burgess, Lara Baker and Elizabeth Alker, to name but a few, who have each put forward hotly tipped emerging artists, defined by only having been together less than 24 months and having not yet released an album. With a huge focus on the undiscovered, Off The Record has set themselves apart by choosing to not announce the line-up to the public until 24 hours before the event
