2015 – 2016
In November 2015 Acoustickle organised a ‘one-off’ event at The Maze for their 10th Birthday month. We burned Nag Champa, set tables, and brought our friends out for live hip hop, jazz, soul and poetry. On stage we had J Littles, Bru-C, KC Da Rookee, Garton, Yazmin Lacey, Natti Rudyj, JahReal Jahrel, Criminal Diplomacy and Acoustickle founder Parisa East.
Hannah Money designed our stage for the first time, we have worked with her ever since. The first event created such a buzz (and a hip hop cypher at the end) that we decided to bring Acoustickle back to life. January, February, March, April and May 2016 have since been unforgettable.
Our team includes Nico Costa graphic designer, DJ Dan Teef (DCRM), JahReal Jarel resident host, and Hannah Money stage design.
Live Acts 2016: Akua Naru, Ayanna Witter-Johnson, LTMT live band (J Gold, Kamar, KC Da Rookee, ML Francis) Ella Knight, Lia White, Keto, Ben Hibbert, Lee Ramsay, Marita Metelia, Jourdan Pierre Blair, Kyoko, Yijay 0115 Mob, El Dia, Natti, Bridie Squires, J Lebowski & Fransua, Chai Larden, The Wall Flowers, I AM STARZ, Vee, Aye Nizzy and Can B, with DJ Dan Teef bringing the illest sets every time.
2009 – 2013
Acoustickle started as a small smoky event at The Maze and soon became one of the hottest spots in town for breaking new talent to the Nottingham scene. The Alley Cafe became our second venue, and we became one of the first ever performances for Jake Bugg, Georgie Rose, St. Raymond, Georgia Copeland, Daudi Matsiko, Yazmin Lacey, Kriss Riss and a host of other artists who have since gone global.
We’ve had hundreds of independent musicians on our stage, including: Faye Houston (Resonators), Natalie Duncan, Harleighblu, Nina Smith, Joy Mumford, Captain Hotknives, Perkie, Liam O’Kane, Kirk Spencer, Metske, The Leano, Bud, Jody Betts and many more!
