Young London: Into Music is a new urban youth festival aimed at developing the next generation of talent in east London. A series of five individual events – produced and delivered in the five Olympic and Paralympic Host Boroughs of Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest. The festival happens between Friday 26th June and Sunday 2nd August 2009.

Each event will showcase some of the boroughs rising stars, alongside names from grime, dance, dubstep and indie. So far artists such as Bashy, Ms Dynamite, Roachford, Leon Jean Marie, Double S, Ghetts, Shola Ama, The Thirst, Urban Vocal Collective, and Akala, have been confirmed as performing artists.

confirmed events are:
Friday 26 June: Rising Tide present 'Inner City Lives' at Ocean, Hackney with Ms Dynamite, Akala, and more!
Thursday 16 July: Continental Drifts present at Rough Trade East, Shoreditch with The Brute Chorus. In addition there will be more special guests confirmed!.
DTBC Mid July: Music Matrix, Greenwich Shopping Mall in partnership with Bashy.
Tuesday 23 July: Urban Development present 'Re: Definition' at Stratford Circus, Stratford with Ghetts and Leon Jean Marie. With more guests to be confirmed.
Sunday 2 August: Biggafish at Underage Festival, Victoria Park, Tower Hamlets. A carnival float will be created by working with street and graffiti artists.

Young London: Into Music is delivered in partnership with Biggafish, Continental Drifts, Music Matrix, Rising Tide, and Urban Development. Over 100 young people between 14 and 25 years old will receive professional mentoring and the chance to work with established artists.

A large part of the group who will be mentored by Young London: Into Music fall under the socially excluded banner and are ‘Not in Employment, Education or Training’ (NEET). By working with industry professionals, the young participants will be inspired; engage in the development of new music content; curate, produce and promote a series of events alongside the high profile artists. Young London: Into Music will be created by young people, for young people.

The project will foster links between participants and record labels, publishers, promoters, broadcasters, producers and artists; in addition to instilling self-confidence and professional work experience to all its youth contributors.

Young London: Into Music is a key strand of CREATE09 – the multi-genre, multi-event festival of culture that will be celebrating a wealth of music and art.

More information will be here when available.
