Hello there, Tony here.
The Bedford has always had a passion for performance and a desire to make a difference in peoples lives. Over the years we’ve been fortunate enough to have some incredibly gifted musicians grace our stage and we have played a pivotal role in helping lots of artists reach the next stage of their career.
From Paolo Nutini to James Morrison, Amy Macdonald to Ellie Goulding many of todays biggest names began with us.
Every year we go to Austin in Texas and recreate The Bedford at “South By South West” (www.sxsw.com) the worlds most important and influential music conference and festival.
For 3 nights we give 18 incredible acts the chance to be seen and heard at their very best and to have the opportunity to be discovered by an International audience.
We are not officially supported and always have to find the funds do this independently.
This year we really need your help to make it happen so we’re offering heaps of unbelievable exclusives, from video’d private flights and secret gigs to famous portrait paintings, days in the studio with a host of great artists, and hot dance remixes.
So please check our list of rare and never to be repeated incentives and get involved directly to help us bring great music over to the US in March.
We will also be introducing new incentives and fabulous, unique offers as the campaign progresses, so keep checking the site for additional goodies.
Also we are going to donate a proportion of the profits from this pledge to Teenage Cancer Trust charity in order to help all them in all the good work they are doing.
Thanks for reading this, and for getting involved.
Together we are ONE
