After five live streams, Playhard has proved its potential with a quarter of a million hits at GotSeen and 36,000 viewers for the July (while averaging longer screen times than usual for streams) and becoming GotSeen TV’s second largest event. Since launching as part of the 2012 International Live Music Conference, artists from every single bill have raised their profile. "Perfect night out for those who like their beer cold, their music loud, and their tights laddered. I discovered one of my favorite new bands at Playhard" (Music Vice).

"An amazing night full of energy and laughter. Make sure you get down to the next PLAYHARD." (Joyzine)

The Way Home. Five “Heavy Gospel”. Soaring vocals and a hook laden melting pot of rock, soul, country, and blues favourably compared to the likes of Fleetwood Mac, The Band , Janis Joplin, The Black Crowes, Joe Cocker and Mamas & Papas. Recently wowing the USA, you NEED to witness this, their London show. @thewayhomeband

The Carpels are in the vanguard of putting The Midlands scene in 2012 music history. “Brum can stake a claim as the hottest place in UK indie” (NME). Feel the electro fuzzed guitars of this influential young band – in your face. “Clever, edgy” (Music Week), “Incredible” (Rob Da Bank, Radio 1) before they support Reverend & The Makers they make this their London call. @thecarpels

Deadbeat Echoes. Four teenagers playing pop for people from the darker side of town, they’ve recently been supporting The Charlatnans. Attention is growing for this is musical movement to catch sooner rather than too late.; "The trick of making high art for the people, taking the esoteric and putting it onto the terraces and into the council estates." (Louder Than War) @deadbeatechoes

The Broxton Hundred – so new, but such an instant attraction that they’ve already earned a Band Of The Day accolade. “If you can catch this band live do so.” (Louder Than War) Sprinklings of Psychedelia, plenty of groove and the knack for a pop tune, this trio owe a musical debt to The La’s and The Stone Roses among others. @broxtonhundred

“If you wanna go to the best gig in the UK.. its 'PlayHard” (GotSeen TV). Playhard - The best in new and old music favourites, plus media/industry mover shakers on the dance floor/at the bar. Artists are also interviewed to camera, photographed and the bar is where the latest word of mouth exchanges happen. “PlayHard gives the opportunity for new bands to become successful and meet new people”. (Jon Brookes, The Charlatans)
