What we're looking for

We offer a range of opportunities for bands of all sizes and genres. We are always interested in local bands, but also take acts from out of town. We try to curate lineups that work as a whole, where the acts compliment each other, giving smaller bands a chance to play shows with like-minded artists of various sizes and to a suitable audience. We also offer support slots to artists that compliment or fit with any of the larger or touring bands that play at the venue.

About us

Here at the New Cross Inn we put on live music every week from Tuesday to Sunday, where you can check out big bands, small bands, medium-sized bands and sometimes, really famous bands, playing all kinds of genres. We like to mix it up, so the only criteria we have when we’re booking is that it sounds awesome.

How to get a gig

Please email to with: the name of your band; up to date links to your social media sites and website if you have one; a link to somewhere we can listen to your music (Soundcloud, BandCamp, Youtube etc. No media files please).

We promise to listen to every submission we get, but if we don’t have anything suitable for you at the time, we will not get back to you until we do. For new bands and artists wanting to try out new material, we also host a weekly open mic night on Tuesdays that anyone can get involved with, from acoustic acts, to full bands, to spoken word, comedy and more. Email for more information.
