TRUE MUSIC

If it comes from the heart, there’s no wrong way

ballantines boiler room true music africa douala scaled new

It liberates. It unites. Gives us those ‘Oh Sh*t’ moments. The ones that matter. A global language. Words optional.

 

It’s for everyone. A place to look, feel, move, love, drink and just BE YOU. Because in music, if it comes from the heart, then there’s no wrong way.

True Music is not about genre. Not about fame. It’s here to represent & celebrate music communities, and the people that make them thrive. Give a stage to the most exciting emerging talent. And give a safe space for everyone to enjoy – whether you’re at home via our live stream or sweating with us on the dancefloor.

Resetting The Dancefloor Report

We have commissioned this report to listen and learn. To mark our own commitment to making music culture safer and fairer for all. We explore the actions we can take. We start to see what more inclusive dancefloors can look like. Music matters. So does this.
