Within a 2 mile radius of Herne Hill Station are 4 independent Junior Open Mics - including the largest and second largest in the UK. Pretty handy for aspiring young musicians when you consider there are merely a handful in the country.
On 15th September, Junior Open Mic’ers from all over South London will gather to perform at JOM Micro Music Festival II in Brockwell Park. Thirty-two acts (totalling fifty-two young artists) performing one song each plus two guest acts - one of which is already signed with Rough Trade Records. The average performer age is 12.
