Discover Emerging Artists at the Acoustickle Summer Showcase.

For 15 years Acoustickle has produced live music and spoken word events across Nottingham, and is bringing a selection of incredible local artists to Nottingham Playhouse.

Expect soulful performances, DJs, and dreamy décor, in an unmatched intimate atmosphere. For one special night, you’ll be transported to the magical world of Acoustickle, where original and groundbreaking artists evidence just how much talent exists in this exciting city.

Live acts for the Summer Showcase include: Cara Thompson, Chris Oliver, Nottingham Community Choir, Davina Songbird, Veeuda, plus our very special guest headliner – CAPPO, the legendary Hip Hop artist from Nottingham, who will perform an exclusive live band set for the first time in his 30+ year career.

There will also be an after party with DJs, and a pre-event food and drink experience featuring local restaurant pop-ups.

Nottingham-based Acoustickle was the first live performance of Jake Bugg, Yazmin Lacey, MELONYX and other well-reputed acts, plus the first Notts show for Akua Naru, Tiana Major9, Jaz Karis and more. Over the years they have hosted well over 1000 live performances at venues big and small, including Old Market Square with The Spiegeltent and with Green Hustle Festival, The Arboretum with Notts Green Festival, and a range of independent locations.

Acoustickle is the brainchild of Parisa East, and supported by team member CeCe Love, both of whom are artists of colour residing in Nottingham.
