7:00pm - 9:00pm: JMC GOES LIVE
JMC Goes Live has been inspired by the online music festival, Isol-Aid - a gathering space where artists play 20-minute sets streamed live via their Instagram accounts. At the end of their set, each musician tag-teams the next artist to play spreading the sense of community, and good feels and this is what we aim to produce for our current and alumni students from JMC. We believe this to be a great experience for the artists and organizers in exploring different (but relevant) platforms, gaining exposure and confidence and for students to connect nationally.
