The event is part of a ’12 shows with Sleepwell’ documentary which charts the production and music companies as they host one show every month for a year and a celebration of Watermelon Media/Watermelon Music’s one year of the ‘WM Studio sessions Freestyle’ series on YouTube, hitting over 321,000 views and still growing.

Danny Holloway, from Sleepwell Productions, said: “This is for all the local artists that don’t always get recognition despite all get being so talented.

“The Windmill event is our fourth show and we have already been asked to do shows in London and further afield.

“We are also creating a podcast called “Deep East Talk Show” about mental health and struggles. We have got a “goggle booth” which is a reaction music channel and have a great team behind us.”

Rapper and Watermelon Music and Media CEO Charlie Daniels (Charlie’D) added: “The event has been put together to bring light to a growing music community in the south east of England that is still quite underground. Not many artists make it out of our area and get themselves known. Our combined goal is to push and see the rise of the south east.

“As two separate companies working towards the same goals, we decided instead of arguing and competing with one another, to work together to achieve these targets.”

Show tickets are £10pp, £20 for family ticket (under 18s can attend until 9pm) under 18 £5 and VIP tickets at £50.
