XLR Festival 2014

The XLR Festival returns for its fourth year of free music workshops and performances

On Tuesday 12th August,  Ujima was on air live at the XLR FESTIVAL launch! The day went very well with the young people engaging in all the various activities throughout the day.


Ujima was broadcasting from the centre for the very first time, where we spoke to some of the organisers and those participating at the festival. 

You can look at some of the pictures taken on the day, the festival is on until Fri 15th Aug 11pm -9pm free entry.

Running from 12th-15th August, this year’s XLR Festival offers an even bigger selection of acts, extended hours and more opportunities to get involved

XLR aims to create and showcase high quality, uplifting music – and give the young people experiences they won’t forget and which can help their personal and professional development. In order to do this, we’ve invited industry leaders to run professional sessions in lyric writing, beatmaking and recording, as well as workshops in how to make music videos and run photo-shoots, and entrepreneurial talks. There will be performances every evening showcasing new music talent.

Throughout the rest of the  week you will be able to hear daily podcast from the festival on the Cruising Show between 4pm-7pm.

Come along, get involved, and bring your family and friends.
