YOUNG Island musicians will play their part in Eklectica.
Students from music college Platform One will perform, opening the main stage on Saturday and Sunday.
They will also gain valuable work experience in the technical aspects of staging a festival and in artist-liaison and event-management roles.
Platform One director David Pontin said: “Platform One are delighted and proud to be part of this new event.
“We will be showcasing a number of students, across the range of programmes we offer. This will include bands and artists on various stages, including the main stage.”
The band BaDow will be among those playing the main stage.
Robin Hill park manager James Crofts said: “As a company, we are committed to developing our young people, so we’re delighted to extend this out to Platform One and provide the opportunity at Eklectica to showcase the amazing young talent here on the Island.”
