Bloody Underrated is a not-for-profit organization with the mission to support alternative art forms in any way possible, and to promote underrated artists and their work. It is also part of B.U.’s mission to produce events that generate attention for said artists – hence the creation of the SOLOS festival in co-production with Plein Espace, who share a similar mission. We do our best to locate great artists who are not getting enough attention and attempt to share them with a new audience. We’re into almost every genre, and we’re always on the lookout for talented bands, great plays, or any other events that seem to be going unnoticed and could use some exposure. Got any suggestions? Any comments? We want to hear them – drop us a line. Long live independent art!
