Brighton Dome project SPECTRUM cultivates and supports the vibrant music scene of our city.
Brighton is brimming with musical talent which we love to showcase, offering bands the perfect platform to be seen and heard and audiences the chance to discover something new or see their favourites local acts in our iconic venues.
The redevelopment of our Studio Theatre gives us the opportunity to explore the neighbouring Royal Pavilion estate and do something a bit more unusual.
QM Records is a Brighton based record label and events company focusing on upcoming talent and artist development. Since it's establishment in 2013, QM has developed a reputation for hosting good quality live events with exciting new artists. Both Nicholson and Ned from the band Normanton Street are the founders of QM. Together they use their experiences from being in a successful independent band to enable other artists achieve their goals. Although the label is not genre specific, there is a general leaning towards music with soul.
