Inside The Arena - Sweetmore's Live Sessions

29 March 2021

Rochdale Football Club is delighted to announce the launch of ‘Inside The Arena - Sweetmore’s Live Sessions’.

It’ll see matchday announcer, Dave Sweetmore, inviting local, unsigned musicians to perform pitchside at the Crown Oil Arena, as we reach out to engage with music artists from Rochdale and across the wider Greater Manchester area.

Dave Sweetmore commented: “We’ve always had a great reputation for the music at Dale, and this is a great way to continue the work we do by supporting new local unsigned music.

“It has been a hard year for artists to get their music out to the public, plus the music scene in the Rochdale area seems to have been quiet over the last few years, so this is a great way to dig out some of the area’s great talent and give them a public platform to perform on.

“In addition to asking the artist to perform three songs, two of which must be original material, of any genre, I’ll also be conducting a short interview. 

“The videos will be shared on the club’s official Youtube channel for all to see, and I'll also be sharing them with friends who also work on the music scene, so who knows who could end up watching them!”

We are looking for musicians from all over the Borough and Greater Manchester to perform. If you are interested in getting involved, email

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
