TicketWeb has revealed that it will partner with local promoters to showcase up and coming talent across the country.
The first of these partnerships is with CloseUp Promotions who work with a range of emerging talent around the UK. Run by Sam Tucker, CloseUp operates in London, the south of England and most recently in Brighton.
This partnership will see TicketWeb and CloseUp team up for monthly showcases at the Brighton venue BLEACH which will feature top indie and electronic acts.
Sam Isles, managing director of TicketWeb, said: “TicketWeb is a passionate supporter of upcoming talent and teaming up with Sam and the CloseUp team is a natural step for us. Sam is a bright, young promoter with big things ahead of him. The emerging artists that he represents will be of tremendous value to our fans who live for new music.”
Sam Tucker, of CloseUp Promotions, added: “Partnering up with the TicketWeb team is great news for myself and CloseUp, it will enable us to bring bigger and brand new audiences to some of the exciting new acts we present. Our monthly joint showcases at Bleach already look set to become one of the most well established nights in Brighton.”
The first CloseUp & TicketWeb presents takes place at Bleach in Brighton with performances from The Island Club, Howland, Judas and Seats on Thursday, August 18.
