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 contemporary underground music.

Showcasing artists from around 

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

Dedicated to book, promote, photograph, collect and DJ new and notable music and 

introduce rock'n'roll to the next generation.

You'll hear a variety of

sub-genres at Acid Box events.

Whether the pair are DJing at bars, festivals and clubs; hosting live bands

or presenting their radio show. 

They're enthused equally by killer grooves, catchy hooks, big riffs, raucous live shows, hypnotic soundscapes and heavy drones.

Predominantly anything within the sonic spectrum of

garage rock, post-punk, psychedelia, acid rock, heavy fuzz and motorik, krautrock 

rhythms as well as frequent forays into territory of even more experimental sounds, 

electronic/synth 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 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 venues.

Acid Box also manage feminist collective

blog and now defunct club night
