Following on from last week, here’s the second instalment of our “Portsmouth Gig Promoters of the Week” short feature! Pre-lockdown, Portsmouth’s music scene was thriving with gigs popping up left, right and centre! This was all thanks to the variety of Portsmouth gig promoters bringing some of the best upcoming, touring bands and local bands together for brilliant gigs in the city.
Going to concerts at grassroots venues is one of the best ways to find your next favourite band and hopefully we’ll be able to do that again once it’s safe to do so! However, although there aren’t any actual gigs happening in Portsmouth at the moment, you can still support these promoters, who haven’t been unable to put gigs on thanks to Covid-19, by purchasing tickets to their gigs in the future!
