What is ‘Massa Confusa presents’?
Gigs organised and featuring Massa Confusa. As they are now based across Donostia, Spain and Gateshead, UK, gig promotions are currently on hiatus. In the past though, they have supported an eclectic range of local, DIY and independent bands, and aimed to maintain low ticket prices (free where possible). They like eclectic music, but tend to specialise in variations of rock and punk including: post-punk, pop-punk, math-rock, doom-metal, and noise-rock.

“The Massa Confusa Presents gigs are a fantastic showcase for some truly fresh and original talents, carefully curated by the band themselves, we should consistently trust their judgement as they rarely put a foot wrong in choosing the bands they share a stage with.” Narc - Dec 2015
