BLACKPOOL music students will stream their sounds live across the internet as part of a two day festival.

Blackpool and The Fylde College will host the Amp-le-Fylde event as students from the music and media departments collaborate for the first time.

Amp-le-Fylde begins with a music concert in the style of Later with Jools Holland this Thursday. It will feature live performances from music students showcasing a range of original and cover material.

The entire show will be recorded and streamed live from the college’s theatre by media students using a multi-camera outside broadcast kit.

On Friday, music students from local high schools will attend a Question Time style music convention with expert panellists from the industry.

They will be able to ask questions about all aspects of working in the music industry from touring and performing live, working as a sound or light technician, creative song writing, studio jobs and even legal and support issues.

Curriculum leader Colin Appleby said: “This is a great opportunity for students to work together and perform in a live setting as they would expect to in the industry.

“It’s a really good experience and the students will gain a lot of enjoyment from the event which the audience will be able to share with them.”

Entry to the performance is free of charge but tickets must be picked up in advance from the reception at the Bennett Road site or by calling (01253) 504420. Doors open at 7pm

Both events can be viewed live at www.globegig.com
