‘If you’re going to see the emergence of a new great band you’ll see them at This Feeling first…’ Carl Barat
An unstoppable force in the music industry, This Feeling is led at the helm by Mikey Jonns, the brainchild of ‘The best club in the UK for future Rock ‘n’ Roll stars’, a quote by the chief himself, Noel Gallagher. Mikey’s small, yet extremely dedicated team run and put on explosive nights in 40+ UK towns and cities with Red Stripe and Pirate Studios (and are still growing!). They also hold a strong presence at major UK festivals like Isle of Wight Festival, The Great Escape, Tramlines and Truck Festival, giving up and coming bands massive opportunities to play to big crowds and to stick major events on their musical CV. Alongside projects like Red Stripes – This Feeling TV, they have established a strong legacy for the brand.
This Feeling promotes and pushes new talent whilst creating the most important thing of all, a brand which bands can trust and for all the right reasons! Striving to get the best music heard, and perhaps even in the charts. They’ve been at the beginning of the careers of… Catfish & The Bottlemen, Blossoms, Gerry Cinnamon, The Struts, Tom Grennan, The Amazons, Yonaka… the list goes on and on.
The This Feeling’s ‘Big In’ gigs are a collection of all the best bands tipped to be making it BIG that year, you can see the next big thing first and be part of it. They always kick off at one of my favourite London haunts Nambucca. They’re like mini-festivals in venues, COLOSSAL bands, loyal new music fans, relentless promoters, photographers documenting all, bloggers and mags, all working together to achieve one goal: to push new guitar music to the forefront of the industry!
SO without further ado… Here’s who should be on your radar 2020…
