about

Future Bubblers is a brand new expansion of the Gilles Peterson and Brownswood Music ethos. It’s a talent discovery and development idea we’ve put together in collaboration with Arts Council England, with a real focus on making in-roads into new areas, geographically and musically across England

We are not limited by any style, genre or label. We want to actively seek out and assist some of the freshest and most innovative music makers from across England, and offer them a whole heap of support, mentorship & advice, profile & opportunities. Future Bubblers is about digging. The project will roll out across England, focussing on different key cities in each of the 3 years we’re active

We want to help the bigger picture too; a scene to support and nurture these artists is key. Helping local audiences to discover the hidden musical treasures buried deep in their city - putting together positive music experiences that leave behind vibrations for a scene that continue to support and value music from that city. This is not a one-off in-and-out do-good scheme; 'Future Bubblers' is about mentoring and development for the long term across the country. It is a country-wide 'movement' of like-minds and vibes
