Victorious are pleased to announce that The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) will be sponsoring Victorious Festival for another year.
As world leaders in music industry education, ACM prides itself on its strong learning by doing ethos.
With a host of A list talent topping the bill, including sets from Madness, Lady Leshurr, Olly Murs, Stereophonics and recent ACM masterclass guest, Frank Turner, ACM will be able to offer it’s students the opportunity to perform at an event with a high calibre of artists. With over 120,000 attendees over the weekend, ACM artists have the perfect platform to get their music heard by the masses and increase their fanbases.
ACM students won’t just be seen on stage though, as there will be plenty of hard working Technical Services students working behind the scenes, helping to ensure smooth running of the festival. ACM’s Head of Creative Industry Development Ace (also the guitarist in Skunk Anansie) said, “Sourcing real-world opportunities for our students is at the heart of what we do at ACM. We’re so proud to be working with such an established festival to offer this unique experience to our students both on and off the stage. Many extremely talented artists, bands and Technical Services students make up our student body, so I’m really looking forward to seeing them in action at Victorious Festival this year”.
Andy Marsh, Director of Victorious comments “Working in the music industry has always been a dream for me and having these kinds of opportunities would have been amazing. I’m so glad we can provide this type of experience to other people looking to begin a career with music.”
If you want to get hands on experience, learn from real world tutors and gain a qualification at the end of it all, book onto an ACM open day now.
