Friday 22nd June @ 7.30pm
New Found Sound is back for 2018 and it's going to be massive! New Found sound will take place at the Vic Theatre in Devonport on June 22nd.
New Found Sound, organised by the YMCA’s Youth Development Program ‘Raise Up’ is a live music event giving young musicians an opportunity to showcase their talent in their local area.
This June, sees the North Shore’s event taking place with a mix of bands and solo artists all performing for their chance to perform at the Vibe Music Festival.
We are stoked to be hosting a New Found Sound event for North Shore musicians. The North Shore has always had a strong music scene and it’s going to be great seeing some new talent taking to the stage. Although there is a prize for one artist at the end of the event, we want everyone to make the most of the opportunity of performing and networking with musicians they otherwise may not have met, it’s going to be a fun show!
