MOVE LIVE: A NEW LIVE MUSIC AND COMMUNITY SPACE IN EXETER

MOVE LIVE: A NEW LIVE MUSIC AND COMMUNITY SPACE IN EXETER

Move Nightclub in Exeter, UK has been undergoing a drastic refurbishment in anticipation of its latest and boldest project – Move Live. Run by Marcus Osborne of On The House Music with the support of the Music In Devon Initiative, this new project intends to support live music of multiple genres, styles and abilities – as well as creating workshops and classes for new musicians and the local industry to connect and develop.

Move Live won’t replace the club’s current nightclub events, but rather “fill in the gaps” on the nights where the club would usually be closed. We will be experimenting with everything from live hip hop bands, DJs and collectives, to funk, blues, afrobeat, indie, reggae, experimental genres and heavy music genres. We have received support from the Arts Council UK to launch this initiative, which will help us expand on our workshops such as Soundtribe, a youth music collective, as well as future projects such as our DJ
School, Open Mic nights and other live music workshops.

“We want to become an asset to Devon’s incredible live music scene, utilising the knowledge and experience of our team to build a space that is welcoming and supportive of all artists – regardless of their background.”

The venue is a 250 capacity space that has been fully equipped with a new live music setup, a brand new fold out stage for larger acts, security and licensing for underage events and workshops. All of the venue’s facilities have been upgraded and will help improve their Clubnight and DJ events just as much as their future live music events. The pandemic took its toll on everyone, but Move plan on coming back fighting with a new sense of purpose and community spirit. This is just the start of many exciting
developments to come over the next 12 months.
