From here on out, the event that brought so many musicians and creatives together to cultivate the artistic community in OTC will continue each 1st and 3rd Thursday!

Bella Love first introduced Open Mic Night in Fall of 2012 and over the next 4 years, musicians and performers from the local area took advantage of the creative incubation opportunity so offered at the Oak St Mill Stage.

Bella Love Open Mics are a hotbed for talent within the Lake Norman & Greater Charlotte area. Many of the artists and acts to have come through the Open Mic circuit are regular features at OTC events and festivals throughout the area. So bring your A-game and get connected!!
All of the excitement will be brought to a brand new location at Oak Street Mill…. Brick Row!
This community event space and gallery has all the vibes so come check it out and enjoy the show!
