FOCUS Nottingham

The Mic's latest feature, FOCUS Nottingham aims to illuminate the very best of local music talent across Nottingham. No matter what the genre is or how established they are in the city, we want to put a spotlight on the artists that deserve additional recognition.

Acoustic Rooms

First established in 2009, Acoustic Rooms is Nottingham's premier acoustic event. Taking place at Rescue Rooms every Monday night, the evening is a perfect excuse to catch some of the finest local and touring acoustic talent free of charge. The Mic has been proud to provide regular coverage of the night since September 2018 and we look forward to seeing many more people attend in the future.

The Mic International

Whilst we are first and foremost proud to be based in Nottingham and supporting the musical endeavours of a city rich with creativity, we are grateful to have a developing team of internationally-based student journalists providing us with brilliant insights into the local music scenes across the world. 


A beautiful characteristic to the multi-faceted entity of music is its ability to spark passionate emotion and argument between individuals. Whether it is a genre as a whole, an artist or even a single track, a variety of opinions can be formed in a matter of moments. Here is a collection of articles written by our team of highly-opinionated team of student journalists and music enthusiasts.
