How We Secure Great Venues for Our Artists

Tue Feb 09 2021

We’re proud to work with some really great, down-to-earth venues in key UK locations - such as Peckham & Westminster in London, Wokingham & Reading in Berkshire, and Richmond & Guildford in Surrey - who value our artists as much as we do. 

Key UK Venues: Peckham, Westminster, Richmond & Guildford

We have a great range of venues who we partner with to host our Jamma gigs. The most important part of our work is always putting artists first, so we only partner with venues who share those values - particularly independent venues. This way, we can trust that our artists can feel safe and excited going into every gig, knowing that there will always be a great vibe, quality sound systems and an amazing audience. 

The lowdown on our current venue partnerships

Our partner venues currently span across the UK, in locations such as Wokingham, Reading, Westminster, Berkhamsted, Richmond, Guildford, Watford & Peckham. One of those venues is The Chronic Love Foundation (CLF) Art Cafe; an independent, salvaged and repurposed multi-level warehouse in Peckham. They host leading events in music, theatre, dance, film, and art - from grassroots to cutting-edge - with a properly down-to-earth attitude. It’s great for our artists to be able to get exposure at locations like this, who are big on finding new talent and draw in amazing crowds. 

“Jamma hosted one of their ' 331 ' launch gigs at our venue and totally packed it out! As a partner venue, they were with us every step of the way throughout the planning phase and work with venues on an individual basis in terms of ensuring that any earnings are fair for all parties. Their focus is always the artist and we love their personal approach to working with us. Right now we are working with them to figure out how to run safe and social distanced live events in a post COVID-19 environment to make sure we can continue to host live music, thank you Jamma!” - Bar 56, Wokingham. 

How do our venue partnerships work? 

We make it easy for every venue we partner with, creating a bespoke agreement that suits their needs. We work with the venue to decide what is best for everyone and what is the most cost-effective option. As long as we all share a passion for great independent music and artists, we’re cool! In return for partnering with us, we can offer venues a host of great benefits for their business; including sold-out shows, additional revenue through Jamma gigs, exclusive events, and new artists on their stages. 

Partnerships for 2021

So, we don’t know exactly what 2021 is going to bring. But we’re looking forward to returning to live music as soon as possible - even if it is just virtually. From open-air cinemas to rooftop bars, we’re looking outside the box this year to bring live music back to the public, and get artists performing again. We’re looking out for any venues who would like to host independent music events this year - please feel free to get in touch if you’re interested in partnering with us.
