The Boatshed started as a music blog. The aim was to write about music that we thought was really good – that we thought other people would also love. We then started putting on shows with some of those bands that we really believed in. We now put on regular shows in London, publish articles on exciting new music, interview bands and make videos of bands in interesting and amazing places.

The Boatshed is a virtual space where this all meets – a place to hear new bands, find out about interesting live shows in London, read the thoughts of some extremely cool dudes and watch beautiful videos.

If you would like to contribute or get involved in any way then please get in contact. We love talking to people, and love ideas.
