Description

NotAFest is back for 2019!

After a successful day last year we are bringing it back, but this time... across two days.

THE BASIS:

Friday 1st March

We will be kicking off the weekend with talks from professionals regarding various topics covering different areas of the music industry. The four topics will be:

  • TOURING

Want to know how to get into the UK touring circuit, what it requires and the pro's and con's of it for your band/act? Then come and discover all of this and more and ask our panel any questions you may have about it.

  • THE IMPORTANCE OF GRASSROOT MUSIC VENUES

How crucial are grassroot music venues to our countries music scene? How can you get more involved in supporting them? Why should you go to more local shows? Our panel of experts tell you everything you need to know about small, independent music venues.

  • RECORDING ON A BUDGET VS. PRO

How much money do you need to record great sounding material? When do you decide to record in a high end studio vs a local independent one? Our recording panel answer these questions and many more.

  • BAND PROMOTION - ONLINE AND OFFLINE

How do you get as many people as possible listening to your music and coming to more of your shows? How do you make the most out of your social media accounts? Are there any other means of promotion other than social media platforms? Let our panel guide you through all you need to know about promoting your act/band.

If the talks aren't quite your thing, or you want to take a break from the intense Q + A sessions we will have acoustic acts downstairs in The Vault all day.

After a brief food break the evening will be full of your favourite local bands from both the Leicester music scene and Universities.

Saturday 2nd March

It's a repeat of last year with local and national bands playing in both the main room and The Vault, showcasing the best the UK music scene has to offer. Following on from this, Ambush will be hosting the official NotAFest afterparty, featuring your favourite Ambush DJ's playing tracks from all the artists who have appeared all weekend plus the usual alternative bangers.

Acts and panelists will be revealed in due time, day tickets are £10 each but why not get a ticket for the entire weekend for just £15?

Doors open at 12pm on both days and as usual its 14yo + (under 16's will need to bring a responsible adult along with them).
