Sofar Sounds is a global, grassroots network of artists, hosts, and guests, all with the goal of helping to bring the magic back to live music. They curate secret, intimate gigs in unique spaces, from living rooms and churches to hoodie shops and fancy furniture showrooms. They aim to create performance spaces that are respectful to artists, where the audience lives in the moment and listens closely to the music.
They started as a hobby in London back in 2009, became a business a few years ago, and have grown into a global community of music lovers, supporting thousands of artists around the world, putting on hundreds of gigs every month across hundreds of cities.
Sofar is an expanding network of artists and music lovers. It is the first in St Augustine, and now our city is one of almost 360 cities around the planet that are part of this community driven music movement. Next live music event is in June, check out their website below, and see if you can get into the next event.
