SoundLab at the BOC

You may well have heard me talking about this event in the past. I’ve been involved in Heart n Soul’s Beautiful Octopus Club for quite a few years now. It’s an amazing event and as a part of it I try and bring some of the best and most interesting music technologies to the event to show them to the public.

Well this year the Beautiful Octopus Club is bigger and better than ever and I’d really love you to be a part of it!

Every year Heart n Soul takes over the Royal Festival Hall on the South Bank and turns it into the most amazing club night for people with learning disabilities. This year the Beautiful Octopus Club is on the 9th of September from 7pm until midnight and it is open to all. There’s no tickets, no entrance free, and everyone is welcome.

The event normally attracts between 2,500 and 3,000 visitors so it’s a great way to engage audiences you haven’t met and to generate PR and social content.

This year there’s loads going on over 3 floors with 6 stages, 2 dance floors, 20 acts performing, 9 DJ crews, 11 Taking Part areas and on the 5th floor there’s going to be the biggest SoundLab ever and I’d love you to be a part of it.

With just over a month to go there are some great companies taking part on the 9th, but there are still a few spaces left.

What I’m looking for is:

  • Engaging interactive experience for people visiting the club
  • An experience that encourages people to continue their music making after the event
  • Ideally experiences that can be delivered over headphones, as it’s going to be very busy and very noisy!

I really want you to be a part of it and would love to hear any ideas you have for being involved. Also if you know anyone else who might like to know about our event then please feel free to share this page!

If you’re interested please contact me as possible and we can start to talk about what’s possible. You can get me here via email (ashley [at] palmsounds [dot] net).
