sharing an underground studio complex in London.

We are 100 emerging artists, disruptors, labels and leaders in music, film, tech and the music industry. Sharing studios and workspaces, and collaborating on the creation and business of music, we are able to start and sustain independent careers using our collective strength and knowledge.

We take concepts from startups and combine them with the best of learnings from art creation. The Rattle team programme workshops, talks and one-to-one mentorship designed to keep the community at the cutting edge of knowledge. How to think like an artist, how to think like a tech founder, how to design a plan, how to market, how to do digital… We explore alternative revenue streams such as brand partnerships, patronage, direct-to-fan and others.

Our community is made up of those starting their career and volunteer mentors. They are established GRAMMY winners, platinum selling artists, CEOs, producers, business leaders and cultural gurus - and we all work together as equals.

We take on new Rattle members who have an independent streak and are making exciting things - whether art or business. Once through the application process and once a member of the community a new world of opportunity opens up.

The Rattle is a catalyst for a creative, independent music movement. Our mission is to nurture early stage music culture and music startups.

We are supported by amazing organisations and mentors from…
