Eric McKenna is a 15 year old DJ/Producer in St Helens who attends De La Salle and organised DLS SeptemberFest 2019.
Eric said “This was the 3rd year of the event taking place but from day 1 of planning all the way back in October of 2018, I knew I wanted this year to be the biggest and best.
“In 2018, I booked Owen Norton, DJ/Producer from Leeds, and we got around 250 people in attendance and raised £500 for Cancer Research UK.
“I knew that for the 2019 event we needed to up the promotion so I started contacting managers and companies to make this years event the biggest it could be.
“I managed to book Anton Powers, Superstar DJ, Capital FM Presenter, Producer and UK number 1 holder. Kiera Weathers, local superstar singer and X Factor Live Show Finalist. With performances from Jubly and 3RIC MCK3NNA (Me).
“I also designed a touring grade, concert stage design, with technical elements being provided by Adlib Sound, Lighting & Visual Solutions and PA Hire Liverpool.
“The event took place on September 20th 2019 and it was the biggest event I have ever produced.
There were over 400 people in attendance, amazing sets from all the artists and the event really made De La Salle History. The event raised over £1,500 for Cancer Research UK (a charity very close to me and my family).
