Submit Your Applications to Perform on Pirate Live, a New Platform for Upcoming DJ Talent

We’ve teamed up with Pirate Studios to give Point Blank students the opportunity to perform on their live-streaming channel ‘Pirate Live’, an initiative to promote up-and-coming musicians across the UK. Having already amassed over 2.3 million views since the beginning of the year, this is an opportunity for students to play directly to a massive audience alongside a high calibre of breakthrough talent. Point Blank student Imogen recently featured on Pirate Live alongside Kincaid and Sinàl on 28th June and previous streams have featured the likes of Carl Barât.

If you’re interested in applying, send a mix and your credentials to The next Pirate Live session to feature Point Blank students will be held on 27th September and will feature Halina Rice and Gabby Gunn. You can watch Imogen’s stream from June below.
Pirate Studios was founded in Bristol with the aim of supporting young, undiscovered artists unable to meet the rising costs of today’s music scene by providing them with an affordable place to rehearse. Using code-lock technology to make each of their sites completely self-service, the money Pirate Studios save on studio staff is passed straight back to musicians by way of better rates. This also gives artists the freedom to work whenever they want, 24/7! Remember, Point Blank students are entitled to 20% off rehearsal time at Pirate Studios. If you would like to feature in one of the Point Blank x Pirate Studios live sessions, contact with the subject heading “PB x Pirate Studios”.
