Manchester’s In The City, the UK’s leading music-industry conference and live music festival, is looking for exciting new artists to follow in the footsteps of giants like Oasis, Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys and The Fratellis – just a few of the bands that the festival has launched.
With the top scouts from all the major labels and over 3000 delegates meeting in Manchester from 5th to 7th October to debate the future of the music industry, the event is great opportunity to get in front of the industry’s biggest names and be seen.
The Unsigned forum – a hotbed of raw talent which has launched three Mercury music prize winners, 13 Brit Award winners, and 31 acts who can boast a staggering combined total of 144 Top Ten singles – is open to all aspiring artists or bands that are currently without an industry label.
Submissions must include a three-track demo, a short biography and a photo and can be made online via: www.inthecity.co.uk or alternatively mailed to: Unsigned, In The City, Unit 8, Brewery Yard, The Deva Centre, Trinity Way, Salford, Manchester M3 7BB.
Deadline for all entries is 8th August 2008 and the selections will be confirmed by 8th September.
