JOM Micro Music Festival returns to Brockwell Park for 2019
For the second year running Brockwell Park will host a free music festival featuring Junior Open Mic’ers with a line-up of 30 acts. The festival hopes to raise £1000 for Brockwell Park Community Partners, the charity that co-runs the park.
Last year’s event attracted an audience of 400 with festival quality sound engineered by one of the UKs top bands. The acts were eclectic - from punk bands to recordists to caped crusaders. Part of the fun was seeing who performed next.
Main organiser Andy Gray, says “This year’s line-up is under arrangement. Most performers will be from the parent-organised free Junior Open Mic Sessions (JOM) held at Off The Cuff Music Bar in Herne Hill, but not all - Brixton Ritzy Cinema’s Junior Open Mic and other musical organisations will also contribute performers. The age range is 5-17 years old. Some will be veterans, others will be making their debut performance. All of them will be very, very brave!”
“Our remit is to ensure every young performer feels as special as possible. That starts with superb outdoor sound, professional engineering and mixing. Then, on-hand for young artists to use, we have a mic’d up a house drum kit, full size Roland keyboard, a range of guitar amps, monitor speakers, vocal and instrumental microphones, backing track facility, two performers’ assistants and a green room tent. There’ll be a VIP Performers’ tent too with seating to watch the stage and complimentary refreshments.”
JOM Micro Music Festival II will be held on 15th September 2019, 1-5pm besides Brockwell Hall. If you would like to support the next generation of artists, free tickets are available from eventbrite.
