Future Bubblers // Hull Block Party
August 12, 2016
Music is for everybody, and this is a party for everybody. Saturday 27th August sees the first of the Future Bubblers’ Block Parties for Year 2 taking place in Hull. This is a free community event for everyone in Hull far and wide to come and find out about the Future Bubblers concept, how they can get involved, and how it is set to leave a mark on their city. And of course, there will be music, DJs, including Thris Tian, Alex Patchwork, Revenu, Thru Colours and Finn, a live music jam experience, vinyl, street food, skipping ropes, ice cream, hoola hoops and general good vibes all the in the central city location of Queens Gardens – and all completely free.
One of the key focuses of this event is to extend local awareness of the project and what it stands to bring to the local music scene, alongside some important musical moments, which may be, for some people, a first time opportunity. In tune with the general Gilles Peterson and Brownswood Music ethos, vinyl is a big undercurrent for all things Future Bubblers so we’ll be setting up, a mini “turntable experience” at the Block Party, where young and old can enjoy that magic experience of placing a record on a turntable and watch the music spin-out. There will also be a photo-linked social media competition where one lucky attendee can win a musical bundle of CDs and records….
And of course, there will be the all important opportunity for people to come and meet and speak with the Future Bubblers team. The event runs from 2-11pm at Queens Gardens. It is open to everyone. Young, old, families, music makers, music lovers.
This is all part of the plan to invigorate the scene and music vibes in each Future Bubblers city as a whole. “Future Bubblers” is about mentoring for the long term across the country. It is a country-wide “movement” of like-minds and vibes.” The project aims to help the local music audiences too; discovering the hidden musical treasures buried deep in their city and putting together positive music experiences that set vibrations for a scene that continues to support and value music from that city. The intention is to collaborate with burgeoning scene supporters, encouraging music to thrive in the cities that first inspired it. This is not a one-off in-and-out do-good scheme; “Future Bubblers” is about mentoring for the long term across the country. It is UK-wide “movement” of like-minds and vibes.” Future Bubblers have worked closely with the Hull City of Culture, The Warren and Warren Records for this event.
