SO:Music City Festival
18 - 24 March 2019
Multi- Venue Festival including Special Event in Guildhall Square on Sat 23 March
 
SO:Music City is the campaign to highlight how much music goes on in Southampton across all genres and to support the growth of a sustainable music industry for the city.
It's important to highlight how much goes on in the city. It raises awareness to current non-gig-goers, it may help you find out about new scenes, nights and venues.
At a time when music venues are closing and more music creatives than ever before are having to leave Southampton to make a living, it’s never been more urgent for us all to take a positive stand.
 
Music is central to Southampton culture - it's time for all of Southampton's musicians, music industries and music fans to step up, collaborate and shine. Help us build a music-positive city.
