UK: Festival Republic has announced that the inaugural Community festival will occur from November 3 – 6, aiming to bring together the music community with the living, working and visiting communities of musicians and music lovers of Shoreditch.
Touted as ‘an opportunity to embrace the music, bands, DJs and producers that will dominate our ears and airwaves for 2016 and beyond’, the debut iteration of Community will showcase emerging talent across the genre-diverse UK music scene.
Melvin Benn, Managing Director of Festival Republic said: “This is an urban, multi venue emerging talent event inspired by our love of the fact that live music just never stops getting better. But we want to present it in the Community; in the butchers and bakers and the basement offices and loft bedrooms as well as some of the more established venues of Shoreditch. It will represent the energy of our musical culture and the innovation of one of the most innovative and vibrant areas in the UK.”
Jon Mcildowie, Promoter and Music Curator said: “As promoters but above all music fans we are constantly looking out for new and emerging talent. Community is an opportunity for us to share the music that we are all excited about and to introduce new artists to the public before anyone else. I’m delighted to be working with the Live Nation team to help bring the programme together”
