Default This Promotions was formed in 2006 as a means to see friend's bands play in Nottingham. Since then we have organised over 100 shows, put on some of our favourite artists and promoted gigs in Nottingham, Leeds, London and Kingston.

We're now based in Nottingham but still do the occasional London show. We're very much of the DIY attitude, we put on gigs for the love of music and not for profit. We like working with people who have a similar ethos and music taste so if you're interested in doing a co-promote, zine, podcast- whatever you like- get in touch!

Some of the bands we've been lucky enough to work with over the years include: Owen (Mike Kinsella), Joan of Arc, Shonen Knife, Zach Hill (Hella), Hot Club de Paris, Tubelord, Blakfish, Johnny Foreigner, Shapes, Tall Ships, Pulled Apart By Horses, Dinosaur Pile Up, Geoff Farina (Karate / Glorytellers), Chris Brokaw (Codeine), Felix, Boat to Row, Shield Your Eyes, Shoes & Socks Off, Bilge Pump, Kogumaza, Colour, Tangled Hair, Jonah Matranga, This Town Needs Guns, The pAperchAse, Silent Front, maybeshewill, And So I Watch You From Afar, run, WALK!, &U&I, Slowcoaches, You Slut!, Wooderson, Ox Scapula, Uzi & Ari, These Monsters, Talons, Secondsmile, Nitkowski, Love of Everything, Jonquil, Elk, Crushing Blows, Crash of Rhinos, Copy Haho, Cowtown, Bats, We Vs The Shark, Vasco Da Gama, Bermuda Ern & many, many more.
