Any style of music will be considered, however, musicians should be able to perform for 20/30 minutes live. Also, please bear in mind that you might be asked to perform an acoustic set for daytime performances - these are stripped down sets without drums please.
For City Showcase Festival, we prefer original material but the odd cover will be accepted.
However, throughout the year we work on other events with different requirements and will consider acts that include a set of strong covers within their original material repertoire.
Whilst we will not be confirming receipt of your application, we will definitely let you know whether or not you have been successful. Please bear with us if we don't respond for a while - we shall be reviewing all applications first. WE LISTEN TO EVERY APPLICATION!
