OMG Live is this Easter’s big event for teen pop fans. The huge music spectacular is being staged in Birmingham for the first time ever and has now announced that entry to the show is to be made free of charge.The decision was made by co-organisers EMO and the NEC Group in consultation with sponsors The University of Wolverhampton in order to encourage musicians and fans throughout the midlands to participate in the launch of this incredible event.

Headliners Lawson and Union J will now be joined by new pop acts Ollie Marland, The Boxettes and Hollywood Ending on stage in the Forum Live. Fifteen unsigned acts chosen from Music Hubs linked to schools and colleges around the area will also appear alongside these stars in a show which aims to promote greater youth music development through education.

All involved have been keen to make OMG Live viable for an audience struggling in the current economic climate and in reaction to huge interest across social media we are delighted to be able to open the doors and welcome everyone to the biggest show of its kind. Promoter David Andrews said ‘We’ve been staggered by the support for OMG Live right across the midlands, we wanted to make the first show very special and have as many young people involved as possible. Lawson and Union J were both keen to show some love to their fans and we are all thrilled to have been able to make this happen. As a result we believe that OMG Live will be an even bigger event next year.’

Entry to the show will be ticket only. Existing ticket holders will receive a full refund and their tickets will still be valid for the event. Everyone else can now acquire a ticket from and Tickets will be distributed on a strictly ‘first come’ basis. @omgliveuk
