- What is it?

We love discovering new music, and the best way to discover is to share.
Listening Parties are a space to share the music you’re passionate about. You’ll hear it on a great sound system, discover something new, and meet other music enthusiasts.

- How does it work?

Like an open mic, let us know when you arrive if you’ve brought something to share. We’ll have inputs for LP, CD and for minijack, and a computer, so you can bring a track on vinyl, CD, on your phone, or as a name in your head. The wonderful Oxford Audio Consultants will bring some of their high-quality equipment to the event so we strongly encourage you to bring CDs/LPs. Did you know that CD resolution/quality is 10x better than an MP3 on a phone? LP is even better than that!

We’ll have 2 sessions of music, and ask you to attentively enjoy every offering as you would at a live gig. We’ll limit contributions to 4 minutes each so that we can fit in lots of contributions. If you’d like to introduce your track, we’d like to hear what you love about it.

We’ll also have an open Spotify playlist setup that you can add to during the event, if what you hear inspires you - we’ll play the night’s bespoke playlist during the break and after the formal sharing part of the evening is over.

- Edition 2: Music of Collaboration

Each event we’ll set a theme and give you a track to get you thinking, and then ask you to come along with a track you want to share - old or new, from near or far.

This time, we’re celebrating the joy of collaboration. Innovation often grows from new meetings of different cultures, different genres, and great artists. What comings-together and unexpected combinations have most inspired you?
