Festival seeks local young musician or band to join 29 act musical line-up

JOM Micro Music Festival in Brockwell Park this autumn is seeking a young musician or band to join a line-up of 29 young musical acts. The festival is a celebration of young musicians from open mic events and youth music organisations.

Festival organiser Andy Gray from JOM says, “We are looking for someone (or group) brave enough to get up on stage and present themselves to an audience of 500 and perform 1 song. They do not have to be experienced as the line-up is about showcasing a variety of performances – they just have to be between 4 and 17 years old.”
