Give Music a Chance has partnered with Revolve – a communication agency and media group fostering cultures of sustainability. Among other things, Revolve publishes a quarterly magazine focusing on the themes of water (winter), nature (spring), energy (summer) and mobility (fall). Revolve has written a nice article about the work that Music Fund does, including reusing used musical instrument, and creating sustainability in its project by training local instrument repair technicians. It also includes an interview with our own Christian Bertram so check out the article on the Revolve website or download the article here.
Give Music a Chance is a festival for everyone – young and old. In particular, there will be plenty of activities for children of all ages. One of them is the “Virgil”, a musical tale for the whole family, presented by Oli and Lo. You can check out Oli and Lo on their Facebook page. For more information on our childrens activities, check out this page.
We have been working hard behind the scenes, and through the winter holidays, to complete the lineup for Give Music a Chance 2018. We are therefore extremely happy to share with you that in addition to all the great bands we have already shared with you, BaliMurphy, Samir Barris, Zappeur Palace, Axel Lucas, Leo Nocta, Ysi, LouLou Players, Calle Hamre, Simen Walle and Frederic Lamory will all play at the festival. Check out our youtube or spotify playlists to hear the artists!
The Waterloo Sessions team
Give Music a Chance is a different kind of festival and 8eme Groupe is a different kind of band. The 8th Group is composed of 6 musicians with different influences and backgrounds, and Pascal Duquenne is perhaps the most famous of them. Each member involved in the project is part of the non profit organization “The 8th Day” which allows people with mental disabilities to live independently while being supported by an educational team. The 8th Group composes its own pop/rock songs with various sounds, in English and in French and in concert, their fire, energy and humor make their “difference” an original and touching project.
Artists like Alice on the Roof, Saule and Grandgeorge support the 8eme Groupe. Come to Give Music a Chance on May 26th in Waterloo and experience this beautiful project yourself.
