Supporting the underground scene

Proving Grounds came to be after founder and drummer of Kick Me Out saw the tour of his band fail to happen due to the pandemic. But instead of leaving it with that, he started doing something about and launched in October 2020 the first edition of Proving Grounds. Learning from the mistakes made there and what was needed to improve the concept, Proving Grounds 2 was better and bigger! Now, will there be a Proving Grounds 3? OR something else? New announcement soon. Follow our socials to stay updated.
