Podcast and Radio opportunity @ Pirate Studios

Gigs & Radio

Perform at Pirate events, gigs and festivals globally, or apply to have your music played on our partner radio stations.

We collaborate with music festivals, venues and radio stations across the UK, US and Germany, providing more artists with the chance to showcase their music. Gig opportunities are introduced sporadically throughout the year as events are scheduled. Previously, artists have successfully applied to play at the likes of AVA Club in Berlin and Printworks in London.
