Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the success of the Converse Century stage at this summer’s Underage Festival, the stage returns for The Underage Festival Christmas Special.

Taking place on Saturday, December 20 from 12 noon to 6.30pm, the musical promises an electrifying line up at this strictly ‘adults-free’ music gig (for ages 14 to 18 (including 18) ONLY) at renowned music venue Scala, set in the heart of London’s King Cross.

Artists confirmed for the Converse Century stage include White Lies, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip (pictured) and the Mystery Jets who will play an exclusive, off the cuff DJ set.

To celebrate the return of this musical collaboration, Converse Music is giving away five exclusive ‘meet and greet’ tickets to five lucky winners and their friends.

If this isn’t enough, conversemusic.co.uk has got one extra ‘special’ prize for all budding journalists out there who have a passion for music and like to wax lyrical about their favourite artist.

This lucky winner will win the opportunity to fill the sneakers as the ‘official’ Converse Music presenter for the duration of the event. As a presenter they will work alongside Converse Music Media, team member Nick Burman and interview the bands, give an overview of the event and review the festival. The piece will then be put online at conversemusic.co.uk for music fans to see.

To be in with a chance of becoming the next ‘Converse Music’ presenter, all entrants will need to send in a one to two minute show reel which will showcase their impeccable presenting skills.

This can be from taken from previous presenting roles or something created from scratch as long as the topic is music.

All videos will then need to be emailed to GUESTLIST@CONVERSEMUSIC.CO.UK.

These can also be in the form of YouTube links but all clips will need to be supported with a short biography and the reason why you are the person for this coveted role.

Please note that participants MUST be aged between 14 and 18 (including 18) and the competition closes on November 30, with winners being notified within three days.
