Making Tracks

History

Making Tracks was founded in 2010 by Katerina Pavlakis, launched as a travelling season of concerts bringing some of the newest and most exciting music from around the globe to a local setting in partnership with leading venues around the UK.

Making Tracks (MT) was born out of the need to focus energy and resources into making an effective UK touring model for world-class, diverse music from around the globe. Between 2010 and 2018, MT consisted of an annual season of four tours, delivered to venue partners committing to the whole season, creating a coherent programme with national reach and local profile. To date, we’ve organised 31 tours and 327 concerts, featuring 147 musicians from 42 countries. Our events awaken curiosity and deepen understanding of the world through music.

“Making Tracks has been a beacon of diverse music from around the world for the past eight years. The tour they organized for our Saz'iso group from Albania was impeccable, with great venues, promotion and sound.” - Joe Boyd
