SoundLounge Festival 2016 Review

Project SoundLounge is over for another year and it finished with a bang as SoundLounge Festival took over Town Hall on Saturday 6th August. The afternoon session was kicked off by a familiar face from last year’s project, the wonderful AffieJam. She was followed by a selection of the freshest female talent including Barbella, Truemendous, Kemi Sulola and MArieè. One particular highlight of the session was Barbella’s impromptu PSL chant which was taken up by the crowd!

After a short break Docrha turned up the volume for the evening session, introducing their unique and powerful sound. This was followed by the jazz and soul influenced Butternut and the psychedelic rock band, Karl Monroe to finish the night.

The team of young people behind the festival have worked incredibly hard over the past 8 months to create an event which showcased and celebrated diverse talent from across Birmingham. Taking on various roles leading up to festival and during the day itself the group learned a variety of skills in programming producing and marketing a festival and gained real life hands on experience. The festival was very well received and the feedback from audience, artists and crew members was incredibly positive.
