Hello all XYZ’ers,
Welcome to the new and improved website!
Let’s start with a bang and remind you that the annual XYZ Music Festival is approaching fast!
The festival is on the 18th of July from Midday to 9pm.
Adults = £7.50
Under 16’s = FREE
XYZ Students = FREE
There will be lots of attractions for you to come and enjoy such as:
Student instrumental performances:
Throughout the day the XYZ will be holding several student based concerts to showcase what they have been up to over the last academic year. The students range range from beginner to borderline professional standard. The tutors will have the chance to strut their stuff too so don’t miss out!
Student Band performances:
XYZ is proud to present ‘Haze’ and ‘The Unkown’. Both of these bands have been home grown from XYZ Music Academy and now gigging frequently. We thought it would be great if they could come and show you what they have been up to.
Professional Live Acts (band and acoustic):
Covers band ‘The Zefrones’ will be taking to the stage to play a selection of well known hits over the past few decades for all of you to enjoy in the sun!
Co founder of XYZ and recording artist Michael Lee will be showcasing his latest album as a pre release show for students and parents to enjoy. He has been working on this for the past 2 years and it is really paying off!
Free instrumental taster lessons:
If you or any of your family fancy having a go at drums, guitar, keyboard or singing then sign up to one of our free taster lessons. There will be several sessions running for each instrument through out. Make sure to sign up to these upon entry to the festival.
Something fun to keep the kids entertained throughout the day! Adults can join in too…
Another attraction to keep the kids entertained amongst all of the racket!
Speed drumming contest:
We invite all drummers and non drummers to come and have a go at the speed contest. The aim is to hit the drum pad as many times as possible within 60 seconds. Your name and score will be put onto a leader board. The highest scoring ‘drummer’ will receive an XYZ merchandise goody bag including:
1 pair of drumsticks
XYZ Snapback cap
The winner will be announced that day at 7pm on the main stage of the festival.
If you fancy gettin’ your groove on then why not jump onto one of the communal drums (not literally) and jam with the in house that will be hosting the rhythms for you to play along to.
Rocker photo booth:
Since you’ve been watching live music all day we thought it would be good for all of you to come and grab a piece of the action. There will be lots of Rocker props for you to sculpt your image. Your photo will be taken and shared on the XYZ facebook. Be sure to like the XYZ Music Academy page to retrieve your photos!
We look forward to seeing you there! 🙂
Duncan, Michael and the XYZ Team
