Festivals and events by The Music Works

Something big is happening in Gloucester this summer – and you (or if you’re an adult, the young people you care about) could be a part of it, performing live on stage in August. This summer, we’re running a stage in the centre of Gloucester as part of the SoMAC festival which is a great chance for young people in Gloucestershire to experience the thrill of live performance, and to build confidence as musicians and as people.

SoMAC-All-The-LogosWhen’s it happening?

Tues 23, Weds 24, Thurs 25, Fri 26  August, from 11-12 for youth performances
(other performances happening until 4pm)

Who can be involved?

  • you’ll need to have a piece/pieces of music that are performance-ready, you’ll probably have been rehearsing them for a few months
  • it can be anything from one song to a 15 minute set, any genre or performance type (DJ’ing, singing, rapping, bands, playing an instrument …)
  • if you’re under 18, we’ll need permission from an adult who’s responsible for you, for you to perform (if you’re a band, we’ll need the same for each of you)
  • you’ll need to be available on one of the above dates, at those times
  • you’ll work with music industry professionals who are highly experienced in working with young people and all approved by The Music Works.
