OPEN MIC | Future Yard

May’s edition of Open Mic will take place in the Live Room on Wednesday 22nd, 7pm-10pm. Hosted by Katie Mac, our monthly open mic is a great opportunity to showcase your new material in front of a supportive crowd of songwriters and music fans.

KEY INFO:

  • Our open is for singer/songwriters and is not appropriate for band setups. There is a limit of two performers per slot.
  • There will be two vocal mics and inputs for up to two instruments. If you have any special requests that you wish to be accommodated, please email openmic@futureyard.org and we can advise if we can do it.
  • All performers are invited to play two-three songs, preferably with at least one original song.
  • A drinks token will be given to each performer which can be used on soft drinks, hot drinks and house alcoholic drinks.
  • Performers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • All skill levels of performers are welcome.
  • When the live room hasn’t got a gig in it, Open Mic will take place in there and will be announced as such. When there’s a gig on, it will be hosted in the yellow room. When we are using the live room, the same rules of two performers per slot apply.

Open Mic is free entry and open to anyone to come down. We don’t book in performers on slots, just come along and speak to Katie and we’ll get you performing.

If you are looking for opportunities to showcase a longer set or to perform as a bigger group, we recommend our Sunday evening events which are booked in advance. Please email iwanttoplay@futureyard.org to enquire about available slots.

The next Open Mic after this May event is on Tuesday 11th June.
