The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

Listen again to the great Ralph McLean chatting to Hub founder Rob Ellen on BBC Radio Ulster about his quest to encourage concerts in peoples own homes, when the Medicine Show toured Ireland this year with Chuck Hawthorne and Libby Koch (featuring interview and session with them too) 35 minutes into the show.(click picture)

About Me
Big City Lights is an independent music booking agency based in East Sussex, thrilled to be working with a hand picked roster of artists and bands from around the world that we feel are the cream of their particular genres.

We book UK tours, one-off shows and festival appearances catering to the ever-changing needs and development of our artists.

Building on our relationships with an extensive network of promoters and venues up and down the country we aim to create a ‘family’ vibe where everyone works together in bringing this great music to audiences to enjoy by conducting our business in a friendly, understanding, and above all, realistic fashion.

Having both been promoters in Brighton it has become more and more apparent that difficulties we have had booking our favorite bands from overseas is due to them not having anyone here in the UK to champion their cause and help them create a touring presence here.

So, we decided to take up the challenge ourselves.

Del Day has been in the music industry for over 20 years and has worked in distribution, retail, radio, journalism and currently owns Ark PR, an independent music press and radio publicity company.

Martin Reay has been promoting in Brighton for a number of years and currently presents a much loved radio show on Radio23.org.
