Pistonhead Lager today announces the launch of The Pistonhead Foundation – a brand new initiative dedicated to supporting musicians, artists, and independent venues across the UK.
Acting as a support network for creatives and venues, the Pistonhead Foundation aims to alleviate everyday costs, as well as providing free rehearsal and creative spaces to those who need it.
From providing the deposit for a tour bus or replacing stolen instruments for a band; to leasing exhibition space or being the drinks sponsor at an artists’ first show, Pistonhead are looking to provide a healthy support to creatives at a time when pay is stagnating and venues are struggling across the UK.
Teaming up with Pirate Studios – a network of rehearsal studios in London - and So Young Magazine’s illustrator competition, the Foundation will also be drawing on a network of partners to provide creative space and opportunities.
The arrival of the Pistonhead Foundation follows a rich history of supporting music and subcultures, which has seen the drinks brand sponsor gigs, festivals, exhibitions and car shows across the UK.
