First Annual South City Records Music Festival (Video Assignment)

leave a comment »

South City Records organized its first music festival in downtown Hattiesburg, Miss. The event took place on April 13, 2013. This festival was completely student run, and organized in roughly two months.

South City Records gives the Entertainment Industry students at the University of Southern Mississippi hands-on experience in how to work in a record company. The faculty advisor for South City Records, Drew Young, actually owns his own record label as well, so he tries to model South City Records to work like a real-life record company. This festival gave the students even more experience with how to deal with sponsors, booking bands and locations, and even doing some of the grunt work too.

The students in South City Records worked with such dedication to organize and execute this event. They were so proud of what they had done. The festival managed to attract a decent crowd and everyone seemed to be having a good time. They are anxious and excited to start planning their next event, and I am personally excited to attend it and see how great of a job they do once again.
