Calling all musicians – City Showcase

by Ben Davis on 18 March, 2008 | 0 comments

Follow in the footsteps of Hot Chip, Sway, Newton Faulkner, Razorlight, Amy Winehouse, Keane and Ray LaMontagne. Music City Showcase, London’s leading festival for new music, is now looking for up-and-coming musicians to take part in its annual festival in 2008 – to be held between 2-6 June.

This event provides public exposure, advice and mentoring, plus the crucial contacts that aspiring talent needs, and culminates in a series of live events in venues in London’s West End (giving musicians the opportunity to perform in West End stores and legendary venues such as the Metro Club). There are also a series of workshops and seminars throughout the week, bringing together aspiring talent with the top movers and shakers from the music industry.

City Showcase covers all types of music – from classical to pop, from rock to urban. And all types of performers – from bands to singer songwriters, from solo artists to DJ’s… Gigs specific to each genre will be put on during the week, including specially designed events for Asian, New Zealand, Australian, Canadian and Chinese talent.

If you want to take part in this exciting festival, and showcase your work, please send a web link (if you have one), a brief biography, a photo and a CD demo to City Showcase, PO Box 2212, Pulborough, RH20 2XJ. Clearly mark your envelope as a City Showcase application.

Alternatively you may apply through www.sonicbids.com/cityshowcase. City Showcase submissions through Sonicbids are open to ALL artists, though there are four slots exclusively reserved for artists selected through Sonicbids – one from North America, one from Australasia and three from Continental Europe with a travel contribution for the selected applicants.

Deadline for applications is 31 March 2008
