From the last concert
Why are you putting on these concerts?
Music on the Move concerts are a Kids Up Front’s fundraising initiative, inspired by our organization’s mission: to provide children and youth with access to enriching experiences. We wanted to create an initiative that captures the same kind of experience and access we provide to our city’s children and youth throughout our programming. This IS a fundraiser, so it should be expected that donations will be offered at each of the concerts.
How much does a Music on the Move concert cost?
Depends on your package! Prices vary, so please contact Daryn at [email protected].
How long are the concerts?
Performances are at-least 45 minutes long, and we are normally on location for an hour, including set up and tear down. These times may vary depending on the package selected.
What do I need to host a concert?
All we need from you is 1) a power outlet so that we can plug in the equipment, and 2) your help spreading the word about the concert.
We’ll need your help distributing concert flyers to all of your neighbours or backyard concert guests.
What if it rains on the day of my concert?
If there is unexpected rain on the day of your concert, we can make alternate arrangements that suit your needs.
Are these bookings a fundraiser?
Yes! The funds from these bookings go directly to sponsoring programming for deserving kids around the Edmonton area.
Can I invite friends and family from nearby?
For the street concerts, we do not encourage this. These concerts are intended for you to enjoy alongside your neighbours, from your own home, on your front yard or in your driveway. If you’d like to spend the concert with friends and family, the summer backyard concert package might be a better fit for you! During any concert, Alberta Health guidelines MUST be followed to ensure everyone’s safety
Who is performing the concerts?
There are multiple performers involved in this project and who will perform at your concert will depend on the performers’ availability. For specific inquiries, please contact us.
Can I (or a friend) perform for the concerts?
We’re open to connecting with you! Through this initiative, we aim to be supportive of emerging and established artists. For more information and/or to be considered as a performer, please contact Daryn at [email protected].
What safety measures are in place?
All concerts are designed to be in compliance with the current AHS regulations and recommendations. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at all concerts, though you are welcome to bring your own! Plexiglas will be placed in front of performers and/or performers will be wearing masks.
