Mode Music students: finger on pulse of current music scene
This is not the first time the students who are studying music technology at Mode have organised successful events in the city. They were the brains behind the Hypnosis under 18 events which packed both O2 academy and The Elevator during 2013.
DJ Les Calvert music technology tutor at Mode said
“The students from Mode Music are set to follow in the footsteps of many successful club promoters from Liverpool. They have their finger on the pulse with the current music of today knowing their audience. It’s refreshing to see something different happening in our city organised by young people who are passionate about music and not just into it for the money.”
Not only will Vinny, Levy and Kieran be promoting the event, they have also given the opportunity to fellow music technology students to perform a set at the event. Francis Mulrooney, Billy McGlashan, Glynn Williams and Duane Makin will all be DJing at the event.
