Martin Christie’s Electronic Music Open Mic

The all electronic music open mic (EMOM) nights were started by Martin Christie in Manchester in early 2017.  The main purpose of these nights is to bring together electronic music makers of all kinds to share their music in a supportive and friendly live environment.  Technology wise anything goes and past events have included everything from modular to live coding, synthpop to industrial, looping to techno, hip hop to experimental.


Following the success of the first Manchester night, Martin took the concept further afield to Sheffield, Bristol, York and Leeds, before establishing a regular monthly event called Open Frequencies at The Troubadour in London.  Alongside this the EMOM tour has continued, more recently taking in Stoke, Coventry, Nottingham, Liverpool and Edinburgh to name a few.  The nights have proven extremely popular and have also led to similar events being established by electronic music enthusiasts up and down the UK.


We are pleased to be welcoming an EMOM event hosted by Martin Christie to Foundations Festival.  If you would like to perform sign up at the start of the event, get there early to avoid disappointment – there are no pre-bookings.  Slots are up to 15 minutes including set up and pack down.
