Punch is the UK’s most exciting music development agency. We began in 1997 as a record store sourcing hard-to-find vinyl for the black music scene. We launched our annual festival, BASS, in 2006, which is now the UK’s leading celebration of urban music outside the capital. We tour big-name international artists to the UK, including Angie StoneAmeriie and Tarrus Riley. We help break emerging artists including RoxXxan Lady Leshur, Decypher, RT and DJ Jezta. We lead on training hundreds of young people every year as a delivery partner for Barclaycard’s Music Potential programme, and our own creative entrepreneurship courses. Find out more about us here.
