Youth festival to add to The Mix
A NEW music festival has been announced in the run up to the opening of the multi-million pound youth centre project The Mix.
The event, at the Museum of East Anglian Life, in Stowmarket, on September 15, is being organised in partnership between IP1 magazine and The Mix youth project.
The line-up of entertainment will include live music, film screenings and creative workshops.
The day will begin at 2pm with acoustic music in the glade, a workshop with theatre company Blood and Guts and illustration and textiles workshops. The Cinema will also be screening music videos and local film shorts.
Between 6pm and 10pm the main stage will show off the best of local music talent including Newmarket acoustic singer-songwriter Lewis Mokler, whose album Fingertips recently reached number six in the iTunes singer/songwriter chart.
He will be joined on stage by Cathedrals and Cars, Whisky Jax, Pistols and Vultures and Refracture.
Howard Freeman, from IP1 Magazine, said: “STIX festival is a celebration of music, art and youth culture. It has been created specifically for young people and will deliver a high quality programme of artists and activities to put Stowmarket on the map.
“The festival is a collaboration between IP1 magazine, Suffolk’s biggest youth arts network, and The Mix, a brand new £5 million venue for young people that will open next spring.”
John Lanagan, learning and enterprise manager at the Museum of East Anglian Life, said: “IP1 magazine and The Mix got some grant funding from Suffolk County Council to raise awareness prior to the centre’s opening to get young people involved in the hope they will become ambassadors for the project.”
