Brighter Sound is delighted to present I Live Hip Hop Summer School – a weeklong summer residency for anyone aged 14 – 19 who has a passion for hip-hop, grime and urban music.


I Live Hip Hop Summer School is delivered by Brighter Sound and powered by Urban Development’s Urban Artist Summer School – a national initiative supporting talent development in urban music.  It will take place from Mon 1 – Fri 5 August at Band on the Wall (25 Swan Street, Manchester, M4 5JZ).

The week is a chance to meet and collaborate with like-minded, talented young artists and musicians, work with industry professionals in production, vocals and studio recording, and receive a nationally recognised Arts Award accreditation.

Working with a team of established producers, lyricists, MCs and musicians, you will write and record tracks, collaborate with other creatives, and build on skills and repertoire.
