A music initiative set-up in 2019, during Waltham Forest’s turn as London Borough of Culture, Plugged was born out of love for electronic music making and a desire to create a platform where music makers can meet, learn and play together.

Hosting free ‘open jam’ social nights and workshops, Plugged brings together artists, educators and young people interested in making music. We aim to create performance opportunities for emerging talent, ensuring more young people can access collaborative music making experiences. The project is managed by Waltham Forest residents Rob Parton from Stow-Lab and producer Francoise Lamy from Addictive TV.
