Raise The Bar Mcr – Open Mic (Rappers/Producers)

Deadline to apply – Every last Wednesday of the month, link here

Raise The Bar MCR is the number one open mic event in Manchester, exclusively for rappers. They want to take rap back to its roots by building up the community and showcasing Manchester’s rap talent at all stages of their journey.

On the last Wednesday of every month at the Old Abbey Taphouse, 8 upcoming artists have 9 minutes to show Manny what they’ve got and have the chance to win a paid champion set at the next event. The champion set is voted for by 10 audience judges who want to see you come back and perform a 20-minute set.

Raise The Bar also host a Mancunian headliner who is making a name for themselves in the scene for 30 minutes after all the acts.

But the night doesn’t end there! At 10pm Manchester’s best cypher. Whether you have never performed in front of a crowd before or you just want to come down to pick up the mic and spray, you are welcome. Beats for the cypher are sent in by some of the coldest producers in Manchester and a Mancunian DJ will keep the vibes.

If you’re a rapper, producer or DJ and interested in getting involved don’t be shy… Send a DM or come through to our next event to meet the team.
