CirKT: Panellist / Judge

CirKT is - a major, new music programme launching in Kingston this year. Funded by the Mayor of London as part of his London Borough of Culture initiative, Kingston Council was awarded funding in the Cultural Impact Award Category to celebrate its home-grown talent, rich music heritage, live music scene and the night-time economy.

CirKT wants to inspire those starting out in music and music lovers. Successful applicants will have the opportunity for their music to be heard by a stellar panel of music industry giants. All selected acts will have access to performance platforms as well as professional production and marketing support. Five acts will also be awarded £500 and mentoring support too.

Mickey Beans, La Roux's Keyboardist, said: "CirKT is a huge opportunity for new music talent and it is just what London needs right now. I am passionate about supporting new music talent, especially in today’s climate and jumped at the chance to be a part of CirKT. I'm proud to be a selection panellist and can’t wait to meet the music acts."
