An incubator for the music stars of the future meets great night out

What Does Not NOISE is an underground concert meets club night in one of London’s most historic music districts, and exciting culture venues – The Lower Third by the Outernet.

The NOISE takes our secret sauce for curation and vibes and applies it liberally to the nightlife and music scene. With What Does Not NOISE, we’re setting out to:

  • Tear down barriers to opportunity and give emerging music talent a platform to shine in front of the right people 
  • Provide the music industry with a constant supply of incredible talent
  • Make sure Londoners don’t have to cut back on fun throughout the cost of living crisis, with a lot of party for your pound.
What makes the NOISE unique?

Each NOISE invites music subcultures from across the city to take the stage in a curated lineup of emerging underground talent. We scour the scene of different genres to find the gems amid a sea of mediocrity, to bring you the noise you need to hear – at your doorstep, in the heart of London.

And because human connection is at the heart of What Does Not, we apply our social mixology approach to also curate the people in the room. A night at the NOISE means friendship, adventure, and opportunity are always within reach. Who said curing loneliness had to be boring? What Does Not NOISE is the latest in our program series to bring edge to forging genuine human connection – and support emerging creators while we’re at it. 

What to expect
The NOISE is part music showcase, part curated jam. And always a great party. As with everything we do, we immerse ourselves in communities to help bridge the divides in society.
So NOISEs alternate between talent showcase (the NOISE) and a curated community jam (the NOISE Sessions), where we collaborate with members of that community to dive deeper into their tribe and sound. In that way, we cast the talent net wider, to bring an even deeper selection of future stars to a stage near you. And give more deserving people access to opportunities. 
With so many elements to the curation, each NOISE truly is a moment in time that cannot be replicated.

Meet the NOISE 'Pay it Forward' ticketing initiative

Kindness can be a force to be reckoned with – and no one should go without during the cost of living crisis. This is why we’ve launched a ‘pay it forward’ initiative allowing those with more means to help those without – in the hopes that this random act of kindness kickstarts a ripple effect. That’s the idea behind paying it forward: if you’ve been lucky enough to be doing well, you can pass on the good luck to someone else. That can then catalyse a chain reaction of kindness and good fortune.

We believe joy and fun are a key part of creating resilient communities and sustaining our appetite for change in tough times. So we hope you’ll chip in if you’re in a position to.

How it works

When you go to DICE to purchase tickets, you’ll see 3 ticketing tiers for £3, £6, and £12, in addition to the General Admission. These allow you to purchase ‘tickets’ for pay it forward purposes. The money from these tiers goes into a pool of money. This then goes toward tickets that get allocated to someone in need. If you’re someone who’s struggling and could benefit from some fun, contact the team at
