"The Internet has completely revitalised underground culture. The democratisation of access on a global scale has empowered musicians, freed information, started conversations, sparked incredible new levels of creativity, and put the jumper cables to an industry that was flatlining. It’s no longer pot luck for who you know or where you’re at; the 1% have been rendered irrelevant. Good music finally reaches the right people. It’s better now than at any point in history, and we’re on track for it to get better and better. We’re part of a privileged generation.
Some see the Internet as a walled garden, where mastery of confusing new rules is required to stay afloat. We see the opposite: the barriers have been knocked down in every direction. The underground doesn’t just live online – it thrives there." – Boiler Room
On 5th November, we celebrate 5 years of Boiler Room with a full day-and-night broadcast of 5 parties streamed live from 5 cities across the world – London, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. The artists billed at all 5 parties have been handpicked by the Boiler Room family, including some of the main players that have followed Boiler Room’s 5-year journey since its outset.
