LUVLIVE is a live music event that launched in London in June 2004 and has now become the UKs premier homegrown live music night. Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande, Professor Green, Maverick Sabre, Tinie Tempah, Plan B, Taio Cruz, Chipmunk, Tinchy Stryder, Katy B, Wretch 32 and NDubz are just a few of the acts that we supported, often years before they were signed.
We now have fortnightly or monthly residencies in London, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Nottingham and Manchester with one more city to be added in April 2015 as well as hosting the quarterly definitive music industry showcase, Radar in association with Music Week and Music Connex.
At all regional and none acoustic shows we provide a house band for acts that don’t have their own and for many of our best-loved MC’s, ILUVLIVE was their first taste of performing with a live band. We provide great networking opportunities as well as an important performance platform and often have famous faces dropping by as well as a healthy quota of music and industry in attendance.
We have been featured extensively on MTV Base and Flava TV and broadcast on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra. For our tenth birthday in June 2014, we held an event headlined by Emeli Sande and Naughty Boy with surprise guest Jessie J.
We have a record label via which Izzy Bizu released her debut EP (now signed to Epic on an ILUVLIVE Record imprint) and offer artist shoots and edit, PR, plugging and event services via Love Solutions. For more information click here http://bit.ly/1mLYzSh
Over the years we have secured Arts Council and PRS Foundation funding to help develop our projects and as from April 2015 will become an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation securing funding for three years. With the additional funding we have extended our artist development programme and will be working with a minimum of three acts a year to help take them to the next rung of the industry ladder.
