Accrington and Rossendale College degree students in with chance of performing at music festival

Bands, singers and musicians are being invited to submit a video audition to perform at #AmazingAccrington – Live! on Saturday 5thMay 2018, to be judged by local lad turned international pop sensation, Reece Bibby, and the Managing Director of sponsor Langtec, Andrew Turner.

Reece, who was born and raised in the town and started his career playing in pubs and clubs across Hyndburn, is now an internationally-recognised singer. Signed to The Vamps’ record label ‘Steady Records’ with band ‘New Hope Club’, the 19 year old has been thrust in to a busy life style and the fast lane of the music industry.

Scott Dawson Advertising met with Audio and Music Production degree students of Accrington and Rossendale College at their Manchester-based studio. They are amongst the first to submit an application to win a 30 minute slot on the main stage on Broadway at the #AmazingAccrington – Live! Festival, along with a £200 cash prize.

Charlotte Scheffmann, Assistant Principal at Accrington and Rossendale College, commented:

“We are really urging people to submit applications to perform as it acts as an excellent platform – it’ll give the shortlisted acts the opportunity to entertain the crowd on stage. It’s just the perfect chance for musicians and singers in the borough to showcase what they can do and we’re looking forward to it! The students are enjoying their degree and work incredibly hard on their production and, as sponsors of this event, it’s important for us to try and get students at the college involved.”

The BA (Hons) Audio and Music Production degree is designed to equip students with the necessary experience and practical skills to embark on a career relating to audio, music production, live sound, and so on.
