The Sampler

The Sampler was a platform run by Sound and Music between 2016-2024, showcasing new music events across the UK, commissioning editorial, and producing a weekly Mixtape.

In March 2024, we integrated The Sampler into the our main Sound and Music website, to reach even more people and bring your events closer to your audiences.

You can still find and list events, listen to our weekly Mixtape and advertise on our newsletter. Join us in this exciting new journey as part of the Sound and Music family.

Discover new music events near you. Filter by event type, genre, location, date, or use our interactive map to see upcoming events near you.

If you have upcoming new music and sound events, including gigs, festivals, workshops, previews or album launches, you can list them for free on our Events page, where they will be seen by thousands of visitors every month.
