'Build a Band' project looks for new talent
Your chance to perform at some of the UK's biggest venues
Virtual Festivals - 11 September 2012
The 'Build a Band' project is looking for undiscovered talent from different backgrounds across the UK, and is open to
vocalists, instrumentalists, DJs and MCs between the ages of 16-25.
To be in with a chance of becoming part of this grassroots 'Think Big' band all you need to do is submit an audition video via the O2 Think Big website by this Thursday (September 13).
The Think Big Band are designed to celebrate and raise awareness amongst young people of the support available and Huw Stephens will spearhead the project to create and produce an original piece of music. The bad will then hit the road in October and November, performing as part of the O2 Think Big tour, stopping in Glasgow, Liverpool, Birmingham and London.
Huw Stephens said: “There are so many talented young people across the UK who don’t have the chance to showcase their musical ability. That’s why I’m working with Think Big to find new talent and offer them the opportunity to shine.
“I want to hear from every kind of musician and vocalist out there. It doesn’t matter if you play the drums or harp, are a DJ or a beatboxer. At this stage, we’re open to anyone and it is so easy to apply, I want to hear from you all."
The O2 Think Big tour is a celebration of the 2,000 youth projects that O2 Think Big has helped to fund and make happen across the UK over the past 2 years.
The shows themselves will be organised and run by young people who volunteered to take part in its creation – from lighting and sound to make-up and engineering. Every role on the tour will be performed by a young person.
