BIMM Music Institute at DIY Magazine’s Class of 2024

6 December, 2023

Our exciting and extensive partnership with DIY Magazine continues as several BIMM Music Institute London students will be working in various roles at the ‘DIY Class of 2024’ celebrations. They will be gaining exclusive events industry experience, interviewing performing artists and even performing.

DIY Magazine’s ‘Class of’ issue is a need-to-know guide, packed full of new artists set to break through in a big way over the next 12 months. Previously included are the likes of Wet Leg, Black Country, New Road, Ashnikko, Biig Piig and BIMM graduates Lime Garden, Phoebe Green, Fontaines D.C. and Yonaka.

To coincide with the launch of the issue, DIY Magazine are throwing a big party to celebrate. This year, Colours in Hoxton will play host on 14 December, and tickets are free.

The headline act is still yet to be announced, though we have been assured that they’re ‘one of the UK’s most raucous breakthrough live bands of the year’. With support from Divorce, BIMM London student Sasha Assad and DIY DJs, this is not to be missed.

We spoke to Rupert Vereker, Publisher at DIY Magazine, who said: “At DIY, we are passionate about supporting the careers of artists and music industry aspirants. The annual ‘DIY Class of’ event is the perfect opportunity to show this in action. With a partnership stretching back to 2019, not only is it an opportunity for BIMM students to get hands-on experience of a working event as they prepare to enter the music business, but we also showcase a BIMM artist as part of the line-up. This year we welcome Sasha Assad from BIMM Music Institute and look forward to a packed and busy night.”

Performer Sasha Assad, added: “The offer to open for Divorce was a strange coincidence. Just the night before, I was telling my friend about Divorce and how Nottingham rules the world. The next day I woke up to a nice little email from Michelle at BIMM London asking if I’d like to open for them for DIY’s ‘Class of 24’ gig. Obviously, the answer was yes, a million times yes. The whole thing really gave me a bit of a God complex, as I’m certain I manifested it. I’ve been playing the lottery ever since!”
