Always uplifting Black music

Home / Events / Showcases

Unafraid to champion young black talent, at UD we recognise individual artist needs and provide an array of bespoke showcasing opportunities.

Whether you’re an emerging artist looking for your first performance slot or preparing for your first headline show, UD are always uplifting Black music.

From in-house gigs at our east London HQ (*) to showcase slots at The Great Escape festival and providing tour support for those edging closer to commercial success, UD has over 20 years of live music know how.

Artists who’ve graced the stage at our showcases, early in their careers, include Ed Sheeran, Little Simz, Donaeo, A*M*E, P Money, Ghetts and Kano.

With a new festival in the works, we continue to be united through excellence.

“UD events have a great atmosphere while being informative and taken seriously. It’s a great opportunity for people to directly access experience, information and contacts within the industry.”
