Open mic opportunity

Any Loughborough University London student can perform at this event but you need to book a slot in advance. We’re looking for music from a wide range of genres to reflect the diversity of the musicians at Loughborough London. There’ll be a PA, microphones, electric piano, monitors and sound engineer so you just need to bring your instrument. If you’re a singer then you can be accompanied on guitar or bring your own backing track.

Register your interest online (using the link below) and Alessandro will get in touch. There are a limited number of slots, so the sooner you complete the form the better.
