For curious listeners

Welcome to the UK’s leading online destination for new music!

The Sampler brings together the eclectic and extraordinary new music activity happening across the UK.

From the latest events in your area to the coolest new venues and artists; with blogs and insights from composers and people at the heart of the industry, as well as ‘top picks’ from artists and creators – we celebrate new music in all of its forms.

All under one roof.

The Sampler, unlike other sites, ‘thinks and hears things differently’. It is driven by those who use it and hosted by a team of experts from Sound and Music – the national charity for new music.

The Sampler is as adventurous and open-eared as its listeners. It offers an inspiring array of content ready to be discovered; with events ranging from live performances to radio shows, webinars to workshops, album launches to lectures and everything in between.

If the new music community is making it, creating it, talking about it and listening to it, then you can find it here on The Sampler.

Sounds good.
