YPN Live UK Tour 2015 & YPN Training Services Launched

June 2015

From 2 – 6 November 2015, the YPN Live Team will be traveling across the UK for their very first YPN Live UK Tour. Schools and Colleges have the opportunity to host a tour date workshop providing their students with the unique opportunity to engineer and produce exciting new bands on each night.

Joining the YPN Tour will be Headline Band LastOneOut and each night will also feature local up and coming talent from exciting new festival artist collaborators, with more details to follow. Students taking part in the YPN Live UK Tour will have the chance to connect with on-site training opportunities at events and festivals in the future.

The Youth Production Network is a worldwide organisation set up in 2010 to help young people interested in live event production gain valuable work experience and onsite training. YPN provides the vital link between a training environment and live onsite event production.

With a 100% success rate for on-site work experience and training in live event production, the YPN have now set their sights on bringing their knowledge into the classroom, with the YPN Training Services.

Available in either a Half Day Masterclass, where the students are introduced to the YPN and YPN Crew Chiefs, or as a full day workshop seeing the YPN Crew Chiefs walk groups of students through the basic necessary requirements and team structures needed for setting up an event, while actually doing it, the YPN Training Services cater for all.

YPN Masterclass

The YPN Masterclass is the definitive introduction to the YPN. Presented by the YPN Crew Chiefs, who have all graduated through YPN work experience and training to become operating freelancers themselves, students get a unique opportunity to learn the current processes of Event Production. The YPN Masterclass also gives students the opportunity to learn the skills needed to work within a production team and connect with YPN for ongoing training opportunities.

YPN Workshop

The YPN Workshop is a brand new and exciting project, developed by the YPN team to create a unique, 1 day training programme on the essentials of putting a live event together. The YPN Crew Chief team guide students through all the essential steps of live event production, and then support them to create and run their own event at the end of the day. The YPN Workshop begins with an introduction to the YPN and the roles required for an event, before the students are split in to 3 groups, Production Management, Lighting, and Sound to build and engineer an event at the end of the day. The event is run live, and the students get the chance to experience the excitement and real life pressure of running an event.
