XTRAX supports inspirational outdoor performance; running projects, festivals and showcases designed to promote innovative outdoor work from UK and international artists. It is based in Manchester with a global reach.

  • In partnership with some of the UK’s leading outdoor arts festivals, it provides showcase opportunities for artists to present and tour their work to hundreds of UK and international promoters.
  • XTRAX manages Without Walls, a collective of leading UK outdoor festivals, who combine resources and expertise to commission work of a high artistic quality. It also runs the Without Walls Associate Touring Network, which extends the reach of Without Walls commissions, supporting them to tour to a network of ten festivals in areas of low arts engagement in some of the most underprivileged areas of England.
  • XTRAX is the manager and producer for Wired Aerial Theatre, one of the UK’s leading specialists in theatre-based aerial dance work and large-scale outdoor shows.
  • XTRAX runs an online directory featuring 2000+ UK and international street artists, shows, promoters, outdoor arts festivals and events:
  • It manages Platform4:UK, a strategic programme designed to support the international promotion and export of UK outdoor artists. Supported by Arts Council England, it is designed to build on XTRAX’s existing showcase work and further help artists to make new international contacts.
