West Yorkshire's Finest

We're here for you, Bradford. We want to foster a new generation of cross-genre artists from the ground up, like 1st Born, Musumba, FLING, Blazer Boccle and Talkboy. Grime, drum and bass, bassline, house, R&B, indie — Yorkshire has it all.

The old guard still inspires though — guitar legend Allan Holdsworth got his start here, and Bradford's own Kiki Dee was the first female singer from the UK to sign with Motown’s Tamla Records.

For more local inspiration, we rate the Bradford Festival and The Underground's open mic night. For clubbing check out The Mill, Village Bradford and the legendary 1 in 12 Club.
