With the cost of living crisis harming grassroots venues, artists, and of course those who attend live performances, Brighton’s Offie Mag is putting on four gigs in different venues with tickets costing just £5. Tickets available below. 

The Brighton based mag has organised four live music gigs in four independent Brighton and Hove venues to support the sector during this difficult time, with tickets costing just £5 to ensure they're financially accessible as possible.

Founder of Offie Mag, Greg Stanley, said, “Coming out of the pandemic, the live music sector and the independent music industry at large have faced huge challenges… In a landscape where most artists make very little money from streaming platforms, gigging and touring is the most effective way to sustain their careers.”

‘However, the Cost of Living crisis has made attending gigs and supporting live music understandably less viable for many, so this project is about creating revenues for artists and venues, and providing an affordable opportunity to experience live music and culture for Brighton locals and visitors.’
