About Music on the Move

Private concerts in Edmonton

Looking for something fun to do this summer? Are you in Edmonton or surrounding areas like Sherwood Park, St. Albert or Fort Saskatchewan?

Kids Up Front presents Music on the Move – a fundraising initiative that brings the private, live music concert experience to YOU!

This summer, enjoy live music with your neighbours, family, friends, clients or employees. It is as simple as choosing a package, booking a date and time, spreading the word, and enjoying the tunes.

We’ll make sure you have a great time. All of our performers are talented, up-and-coming artists you won’t want to miss. They may just be the next Brett Kissel or Maroon 5.

This is your next Saturday backyard bonfire or the intimate candlelight concert you’ve been looking for. Make the best out of your 2021 summer fun!

Our number one priority is safety, and we make sure that every concert is organized in compliance with all, current, local health regulations.

Find out some more details about our concerts

Who is organizing these concerts and why?

Music on the Move concerts are a Kids Up Front’s fundraising initiative, inspired by our organization’s mission: to provide children and youth with access to enriching experiences. We wanted to create an initiative that captures the same kind of experience and access we provide to our city’s children and youth throughout our programs. This IS a fundraiser, so it should be expected that donations will be received at each of the concerts.

How much does a Music on the Move concert cost?

Depends on your package! Prices vary and we’re open to negotiation. Since this is a fundraiser, we will invite people to donate. You will receive a tax receipt for the eligible amount of your concert. Feel free to contact us at edmonton@kidsupfront.com for more details.

How long are the concerts?

Performances vary depending on your package, from 45 – 90 min. We are normally on location at least half an hour before for set up and half an hour after for tear down. These times may vary depending on the package selected.

What do I need to host a concert?

All we need from you is 1) a power outlet so that we can plug in the equipment, and 2) invite your guests.

We can provide you with a PDF poster with your concert details so you can forward it to your guests.

Who is performing at the concerts?

There are multiple performers involved in this project. All of them are professionals, and will blow you away. You can choose who performs based on their genre. We will confirm their availability on the date you selected and get back to you.

What if it rains on the day of my concert?

If there is unexpected rain on the day of your concert, we can make alternate arrangements that suit your needs. We usually don’t cancel a concert until 1 hour before the event as the weather can significantly change.

Can I invite friends and family from nearby?

This is up to you. We ask you to please consider that Alberta Health guidelines MUST be followed to ensure everyone’s safety.

About Kids Up Front

Happy kids, vibrant communities
Before COVID-19, Kids Up Front Edmonton was best known for providing deserving children, youth and families with access to hockey games, theatre performances and once-in-a-lifetime concerts. With major events cancelled, Kids Up Front Edmonton has pivoted its programming to meet the needs of the moment while keeping true to our vision – and initiatives like Music on the Move are part of that change.
We believe in the importance of kids having healthy, fun-filled childhoods.
The access we provide for kids to experience arts, culture, sports and recreation has numerous benefits. These experiences can be a place for kids to develop and grow, for families to forget life’s troubles and come closer together… Ultimately, these experiences can be life-changing and can lead to safe and vibrant communities in the long term.
