What is an open mic?
In it’s very essence, it’s simply a microphone and a stage, that allows you, the artist, to try new stuff or promote your material, in front of an audience.
An Open Mic can happen anywhere, from a local coffee shop to a live music venue with big stage.
Music, comedy, poetry
Our Open Mic is open to any art form, whether you’re a travelling musician, stand-up comedian, poet, or a new kind of artist we don’t even know yet exists.
Currently we provide a guitar, mic and a mixer. If you bring your own instruments, you can plug into the PA system. Acoustic sets only (no amps).
Time to shine
Every musician gets 2 songs to perform, every standup comedian 5 minutes.
No signup needed, just show up.
Keeping things fresh
We encourage artists to perform original songs (however, we do allow covers) and we do not allow regulars to perform the same songs twice within a month.
Building a community
We encourage artists to get to know each other and exchange ideas, projects and contacts.
Sometimes we organise a headlining artist, to bring you new, high-quality music and to help artists from abroad to perform in Italy.
Try it yourself!
Try new material
Get to know new people
promote your new projects
There are many reasons to go to an Open Mic. Some like to improve their stage presence. Others like to meet new people. Some may want to improve their English or Italian skills. Some simply want to enjoy the many performances. Whatever your reason, come join us.*
Currently there are no events due to COVID-19.
*Currently we aren’t organizing any events due to the COVID-19-related closure of venues.
This period has hit many venues hard, and some of our favorite places had to shut their doors forever.
However, we remain optimistic that the situation will get better eventually and art and music will definitely play a role.
So stay tuned and if you happen to be, or know a venue owner who likes our project, get in touch and let’s do great things together!
