About Off Axis

Bands getting bands noticed

Off Axis is a new touring network that enables brilliant artists to play successful shows, to guaranteed audiences all across the UK, even in places they’ve never visited before.

The system 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.
