SW1 PRODUCTIONS started with a goal, and that was to bring more live Music to the South West.
Formed in 2004 SW1 Productions began with the aim of bringing the best contemporary live music to a region that was otherwise being overlooked by many bands/agents on their touring schedule.
Many years later and they are bringing more live music to the region than ever, with many successful shows under their belts with some of the biggest names in music.
SW1 have worked closely with Vision Nine Presents (NASS Festival, Boardmasters Festival) for many years on programming both festivals, however from 2023 SW1 will no longer program the festivals but will continue to deliver the Artist Liaison services.
SW1 began to work with boutique food & music festival Rock Oyster in Cornwall last year, a relationship that continues into 2022 with booking headliners and other acts for this year's line up. www.rockoysterfestival.co.uk
