The first DUMFRIES YOUTH FEST kicks off on Friday 2nd August with an array of exciting acts at the LOVE MUSIC HATE RACISM event, as it comes to Dumfries for the first time. Fans of hit TV show THE X-FACTOR are in for a treat as hit artists MK1 from the 2012 series are set to bring their unique style to the stage. MK1 are a London based duo, Charlotte (Charlie), and Sim. The talented duo have been gigging for a while and making waves writing and producing their own music.
Joining MK1 in the vibrant mix of musical genres is S CLUB. Originally formed in 1997 and with a large back catalogue of hits including BRING IT ALL BACK, S CLUB PARTY and REACH, the band are sure to wow the crowd. Rounding off the diverse musical range of the event are the AMPHETAMEANIES and DOMIBOI, bringing Ska and Hip Hop to Dumfries.
The LOVE MUSIC HATE RACISM event will kick off at 7pm in the Big Top Tent on Newall Terrace, Dumfries that is playing host to the Youth Fest and there will be opportunities for a lucky number of party goers to meet and greet some of the acts.
Cara Hyles, a young person from the committee organising the event said; “We are really excited about bringing Love Music Hate Racism to Dumfries. The different types of acts we have performing will hopefully appeal to a range of different people, which is exactly what these events are about – diversity. I can’t think of a better way to launch the Youth Fest!”
