The Core open mic is a monthly event where we transform the mezzanine area of the Ballina Arts Centre into a vibrant and intimate performance space. The stage is open to young musicians and performers aged 12 to 18 and can even accommodate full bands! It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet likeminded musical people from across the county and get experience performing in front an attentive and appreciative audience. It’s also an opportunity to meet members of The Core, get a tour and even sign up to become a member yourself! As always, friends and family are more than welcome to come along and our performers always appreciate the support! Check out the upcoming events page to see when the next one is on!
Performers have gone from their first performance at The Core Open Mic to performing at our showcase events and festival stages and some of our members have even feature on radio and TV!
