Here is what they had to say about their favourite shows , any ring a bell?

 ‘’Here’s me after one of my favourite MV gigs. Gruff Rhys played his latest solo album at the Folkestone Quarterhouse, which is a really cool venue. He played a really entertaining set of off-the-wall songs. He’s a brilliant showman. And the icing on the cake was that I got to meet him after the show!’’
Kerry Boettcher (Jetstream Pony)

‘’It was magical evening – The venue- The Rosehill was perfect , the artist (Grimm Grimm) and the songs, the amazing graphics combined to create a thing of beauty. Intimate and compelling. I loved it.’’
Grant Lyons ( DJ & MV Staff)

‘’We loved this MV show by Scottish electro folk-pop legends Pictish Trail at the Green Door Store. The place was packed and everyone was dancing and laughing at Johnny Lynch’s between-songs banter. We were so looking forward to seeing him and the band back in Brighton in April which has sadly been postponed. But you can be sure we’ll be bopping down the front next March when Pictish Trail return’’John McAronie (The Hornblower Brothers)

‘’It was love at first hear, I couldn’t get enough of their melodic psychedelic cinematic dreamy sounds, I carefully placed them in beautiful spaces, the Rialto and Westgate chapel. hoping that they would always come back to the south coast’’ Anna Moulson (MV Founder) on Death and Vanilla

“I have been going to Melting Vinyl shows for many years now, favourites have to be Interpol at The Old Market in 2002, Broadcast at Ocean Rooms in 2005 and Stars Of The Lid at The Prinnce Albert, not forgetting the last time Low played at St George’s Church. All MV shows have been memorable, not only for the quality of the act, but the support acts too. MV’s  organisaion skill shave eft their mark on me, which was key to  asking MV to co-oromote Lewes Psych Fest with me”Chris Tomsett (Innerstrings, Lewes Psych Fest)

 ‘’Pom Poko was one of my favourite shows to rep – they sold out two nights at the Hope and Ruin last year. They have such an explosive live show with both colourful upbeat pop and brazen punk – they were also so friendly to work with!’’ Jess Gilchrist (MV Staff, Demonstrations)

“I moved to Brighton for the music scene in 2009, so Meltinng Vinyl events immediately stood out. They punched above their weigh bringing great artists to our often compact home venues. This is Brighton: we must act to preserve the independent artists venues but crucially this promoter who pulls is all together so gracefully.” Iain Orr

“Rose Cousins at The Greys, Brighton April 1st 2019!” Jela Webb

“You’ve made Brighton a better place for do long we can’t let you go ❤️This was a great show made even more memorable by meeting Martha afterwards” Harry Hillery
