OUR STORY… SO FAR

Nerds formed around a common goal to champion underground sounds and raw local talents, to help break new music and support emerging scenes through a series of live experiences that started in London and travelled overseas.

In 2013 we officiated our naturally emerging role as a go to youth marketing partner and created Urban Nerds Collective, an agency through which we apply our passion, experience and continually evolving skillset to the benefit of our brand partners.

2017 will mark 10 years since the inception of Urban Nerds.
