Shoreham Allstars to perform at Wild Life 2016

The young musicians of the Shoreham Allstars have been invited for a second year to play at this year’s Wild Life festival at Brighton City Airport in June.

Shoreham Allstars at Wild Life 2015The collective of young musicians performed at the first Festival in 2015 and created such a fantastic impression with the organizers that they were among the first acts confirmed for 2016.

Wild Life line up features top bands

They will be joined on the lineup by some of the top bands and acts in the UK including James Bay, Rudimental and Disclosure.

Featuring musicians of all abilities, with an average age of 13, the Allstars will be performing on their own mobile stage throughout the weekend, giving 25 bands made up of 70 young musicians the opportunity to perform at a national festival in their town.

David O’Connell, MD of Original Allstars Music, comments:

We are proud to be invited back as it is such a fantastic endorsement of all the bands that performed last year and of what the Allstars is all about – giving local children the opportunity to develop and perform. 

Over the coming weeks our musicians will be working hard at courses and band workshops to create a special set list that will WOW the crowds again.”
