About Pretend

Coming together over music, welcome to Pretend

Pretend is a platform for alternative and underground music in the UK. We do radio shows, throw parties, make videos and interview all kinds of artists from the UK music scene trying to have a bit of fun while we do it.

Pretend operates how we want to consume online media. We support local scenes around the UK and want to represent people from all backgrounds in what we cover and for that to be reflected in the people who contribute to what we do.

Support us to become a part of our journey.

Now we're cooking. From now on we'll be able to start paying our team for their talents, it's not much, but it is a start. We'll get out 2 videos and 4 written articles a month from now alongside our radio shows and our playlists.

We now pay*:
Writers £30 for an article
Presenters £30 for being in a video
Video Editor £70 for 2 videos

*This was set in Jan 2021 - if other income streams become available (such as events) we will look to pay our team better. Excess money will go towards saving for a digital revamp and paying for special ad hoc projects.
