Based in Brighton,

on the south coast of England.

Founded and managed by music enthusiasts Polly Miles & Ollie Thomas who set up Acid Box and hosted their first event together in December 2013.

Formed through a mutual passion for unearthing alternative contemporary music.

Showcasing artists from across 

the globe to perform in Brighton for fellow discerning music fans.

Dedicated to book, promote and document great music and

introduce the spirit of rock'n'roll to the next generation.

The pair can often be found DJing at bars, festivals and clubs or hosting a radio show when not attending gigs themselves.

Enthused equally by killer grooves, big riffs, raucous live shows, hypnotic soundscapes, heavy drones and anything within the sonic spectrum of rock'n'roll, post-punk, psychedelia, 

heavy fuzz, motorik rhythms and frequent forays into territory of even more experimental synthesised sounds, electronic based and traditional music from around the world.

Since the inception of Acid Box they have hosted shows for artists whose music first drew them in, such as Night Beats, Anton Newcombe (L'Epee) and Kid Congo Powers, as well as work with some of their favourite record labels, brands, venues and promoters. 

Always ensuring excellent hospitality, 

regularly hosting touring bands in their seaside home, cooking fresh wholesome meals and doing all they can to showcase, integrate and support the local musicians and intimate grass roots venues.

Acid Box also manage feminist collective

blog and now defunct club night
