Free Yrock Summer Music Camp at Laguna Phuket
Laguna Phuket will be the venue for YRock’s Summer Music Camp during 6-11 August 2007. The music camp will comprise free daily workshops, culminating in a concert at the Laguna Holiday Club Resort the evening of Saturday 11 August from 7:30-9:30pm.
YRock is Hong Kong’s hottest youth events and performance platform providing opportunities to develop and showcase youth talent, putting in place the stepping stones to progress and develop towards industry standard and a potential career in the music industry. It aims to build an international youth scene on- and off- line in Hong Kong and across Asia-Pacific based around music, promoting the international music scene by encouraging original material at the grassroots level. YRock provides a unique opportunity for teenagers and talent to meet other likeminded individuals, form bands, create music/digital media and perform on a regular basis.
YRock performances are held every month and allow Hong Kong’s aspiring young musicians to display their talents on their way to competition in the YRock POP Asia Pacific’s International Teenage Music Challenge in December.
Phuket youngsters will now have the same opportunities as their peers in Hong Kong. The workshops will take place every afternoon from 3:00-5:00pm at the Allamanda Laguna Phuket. YRock workshops are open to any act, talent or audiovisual crew. Talent includes musicians, bands, vocalists, soloists, dancers, DJs and media jocks. For classically trained musicians, the workshops also offer CLOCK, which is a fusion between classical and rock. Music genres range from rock, pop and rap to CLOCK.
The concert on Saturday will feature guest performances from 2006 YRock POP winners Ghost Souljah and Dani & Maren, as well as special performances from youth talent involved in the week’s workshops.
