Get your favourites on the bill to come and see them play.

City Showcase is back in May and we would like to hear from you with the acts that you want to see on the bill.

As you know, City Showcase works year-round promoting the talent of the future, and this year we want you to help to shape the bill for our centre-piece event, Spotlight London, in the West End from 5 – 8 May 2011.

The people who know most about the best new artists are the fans who follow them and we would love to hear back from you with your nominations of your favourite solo acts or bands to perform. There are free tickets to the event for anyone whose nominated artists are chosen to perform (to the first person nominating that act) and you’ll be fully credited as the source of the booking with a by-line on the web.

If you’ve always thought you could do a better job than professional A&R, here’s your chance to prove it. Or if you ARE a professional A&R, we would still like to hear from you!

Please email talent at with details of the new artists you’re nominating including a link to a website or Myspace page.

If you are an artist or associated with a band, please send in a demo or apply via Sonicbids. Please don’t use this to nominate your own band or to apply for the festival

The application deadline is 31 January so get emailing please!
