Oldham will celebrate the national BBC Music Day with a free event showcasing the best performers from the town’s vibrant emerging music scene.
The ‘Sound of Oldham’ event takes place on High Street in Oldham Town Centre on Friday, June 3 from 12noon to 3pm.
Performers include young people who have been involved in the Square One School Band project and talented young performers from the Oldham Music Service.
This collection of singers, rappers and musicians will be doing a range of current, classic and original songs, including some bilingual ones too.
The Sound of Oldham event is being delivered by Oldham Council Arts Development, Square 1 Studios and Oldham Town Centre Partnership.
BBC Music Day is a UK-wide celebration of everything we love about music with the aim of bringing people from different generations and communities together.
It returns bigger and better for 2016 with live concerts and happening right across the country.
This year’s BBC Music Day culminates with a special live concert from Duran Duran and Laura Mvula at Cornwall’s Eden Project with live coverage on BBC Radio 2 and highlights on BBC One.
