THREE young bands Sly At Last, All So Simple and Silver Coast will each perform in front of a live audience at the Spectrum Centre, Inverness, on Saturday (October 3), as they compete to win a place at the Holyrood Rocks final at the Scottish Parliament on October 31.
Holyrood Rocks aims to find the best musical talent in Scotland and is organised by the Scottish Parliament with the Scottish Political and Cultural Partnership.
Holyrood Rocks aims to encourage young people’s engagement in politics, particularly among 16 and 17 year olds, now all with the right to vote in Scottish Parliamentary and local elections.
On the night, staff from the Electoral Commission Scotland will be on hand to register young people to vote and tickets for the event are free either in advance or on the door.
The gig starts at 8pm.
The Inverness event is one of eight regional heats in venues across Scotland. The final, Holyrood Rocks, will be staged at the Scottish Parliament on Saturday, October 31.
A panel of MSPs and industry experts will be invited to select one act from each regional heat to go through to the final and the winning act will be given the opportunity to do a live recording session at Radio Clyde in Glasgow.
