In four years, Summerhall’s Nothing Ever Happens Here… has grown from an idea to bolster Edinburgh’s music scene, to become one of the best places to see exciting, live music in the city.
We’ve brought Billy Bragg, Sun Kil Moon, FaUSt, The Sun Ra Arkestra, Grandaddy, Janka Nabay, Charlotte Church, Iceage, Hinds, Titus Andronicus and a whole host of others to Summerhall’s Dissection Room, whilst helping to provide a platform for young bands in Edinburgh to play with established touring musicians from around the globe. This year, we’re reaffirming our commitment to this, with a new scheme to get everyone on Edinburgh’s music community listening.
At every NEHH show this year, there’ll be TEN FREE TICKETS put aside for up-and-coming musicians in Edinburgh.
We want you to come along to gigs, to watch bands you wouldn’t usually see and get inspired and we want NEHH to be something every upcoming musician in Edinburgh can shoot for. So come along and check something new out!
Interested? Get in touch, tell us what you’re working on, and we’ll put you in the mix.
'Arguably Edinburgh's best music programme of the year'
Rip it up – Remixed is a night of Scottish pop music from the last 50 years with a twist. Featuring Barbe Rousse, Gus Harrower & Glass Ships.
Modern Studies are a chamber pop band from Glasgow-via-Yorkshire. Their quietly experimental landscape songs are played on analogue synths, cello, double bass, drums, guitars, a wine-glass orchestra and, at the creaking centre of things, a Victorian pedal harmonium.
Julia Holter returns to Summerhall in celebration of her upcoming record Aviary. Aviary is an epic journey through what Julia Holter describes as “the cacophony of the mind in a melting world.”
The Wave Pictures come to Edinburgh in celebration of their promised second album of the year, Look Inside Your Heart - a warm, joyous record celebrating friendship, happiness and drunken party times.
