MSG Up & Coming showcases some of the best new bands and artists lighting up the grassroots music scene – and each month, we curate a playlist featuring some amazing new talent.

A host of British music icons have started their careers playing grassroots venues in London, before eventually playing to huge crowds at MSG’s venues in New York and Chicago. Through MSG Up & Coming, we’re supporting the future of London’s vibrant music scene and looking for the stars of tomorrow.
