Platform

At Platform, we are a female-run event management company committed to empowering independent artists by providing them with a platform to showcase their musical abilities.

As a diverse community, we strongly emphasise nurturing connections and support among up-and-coming artists. Our mission is to break down the invisible barriers of competition that often hinder artistic growth, and instead, create a unified space where music performers and lovers can come together.

We aim to establish a platform that not only bridges the gap between artists but also encourages collaboration and mutual encouragement. Through our events, we strive to celebrate the talents and individuality of our artists, promoting their work to a wider audience. By offering a supportive platform, we aim to amplify the voices of emerging artists who may not have had the same opportunities for exposure in the mainstream industry.

Platform is dedicated to nurturing a community that values connections, strengthens networks, and nurtures artistic growth. By building bridges and generating relationships, we aim to create an inclusive space where independent musicians can thrive and where music lovers can discover new, authentic, and diverse sounds.

Join us at Platform as we work towards our goal of elevating independent artists and uniting musicians and music enthusiasts in a harmonious and vibrant community.
