WE. HAVE. MUSIC!

Thats right folks! It’s not all about the visuals, projection and beer drinking!
Leicesters very own MSB has been working tirelessly around the MIDI clock to put together a damn fine evening of music for you all to git down n groove to.

Once the workshops are out the way we can turn up the sound system (courtesy of Kris & JKEntertainment btw (thank you very much Kris)) and really see what a multitude of projectors and their skilled ops REALLY do.

Set times are as follow:

6pm - 7pm New Walk
7pm - 8pm Gezz Pop
8pm - 9pm Watch.Make.Us
9pm - 10pm MSB
10pm - 11pm Jon 1st (2013 Online DMC World Champion)
11pm - 12pm DJ Snuske

Get in (I believe) is the phrase for this line up, so come down and learn something new, be amazed at the projections and laugh as we projector bomb the tax office with your witty slogans. 

Stay a while, stay forever! (I’ll buy the first person who can tell me where that phrase comes from (TC)).

It’s all about the remixing … BYOB Leicester in 48(ish) hours … Great music, most excellent workshops and booooze (please do not bring your own booze!).
