DIY , the music discovery media platform for a new generation, launches the Hello 2017 tour, to promote emerging artists across the UK. Headlined by the incredible Dream Wife, the tour has gone outside of London for the first with the help of PRS funding and is another step in our building long term support for the next generation of headliners.
On Sunday 2nd October, we’re putting on a massive 14+ party at Tufnell Park; DIY’s favourite bands are cramming into Boston Music Room – big names and some of the best fresh faces will share the same space, and everyone’s invited. Previous generations had their influencer brand (Melody Maker, NME, Smash Hits, Sounds, etc.) and, over the last thirteen years, DIY has become the music discovery media platform for a new generation of artists and fans who are passionate about music. DIY has now evolved from a magazine into a multi-channel discovery platform for artists to engage with their fans, with DIY Presents – our live platform – growing as a cornerstone to the programme. Starting with our new year ‘Hello‘ gigs, we have introduced all-dayers, and DIY are working with festivals, brands and industry bodies to give artists the support they need as they develop their fan bases – and bring a whole new ‘personal’ dimension to the Festival experience.
