Get It Loud In Libraries

Library Special showing the Get It Loud In Libraries film premiere

From 2005-2021 Get It Loud in Libraries has scored a unique groove in the fabric of library history by bringing the best emerging and established artists to play gigs in libraries across the UK. To celebrate the last 16 years of rock’n’roll in libraries, Get It Loud In Libraries produced a special behind-the-scenes documentary for Make Music Day UK 2021 that charts their unforgettable misadventures.

From Adele to Florence + The Machine, Jessie J to Disclosure, Young Fathers to Marina And the Diamonds and Ellie Goulding to The Vaccines, Get It Loud In Libraries has brought some fab acts to large and small, new and older libraries in towns and cities up and down the country. Over the years, they have championed libraries as spaces for live music, as important cultural venues and as key parts of their communities and this film is a celebration of all of this. 

To help bring the short documentary to as many audiences as possible, Get It Loud In Libraries teamed up with Make Music Day UK to deliver a global premiere on 21 June 2021. 

Tons of libraries got involved by hosting their own premiere screening via one or more of the following on 21 June 2021:

  • Organised a small film screening in the library at a designated time on the 21 June 2021
  • Premiered the film on social media at 2pm on 21 June 2021

We aimed to have 100+ libraries involved and the figures will soon be in! Thank you so much if you were one of those who took part.
