Open Call For Music Submissions 2014 - Submissions Now Closed

goNORTH is an industry conference and showcase festival for contemporary and cutting edge music of all genres. Taking place across several venues in Inverness city centre, the event connects new artists with a broad range of industry and wider audience in a compact and targeted environment. Our aim is to highlight the best emerging talent from the Highlands and Islands, other parts of Scotland, the rest of the UK, and a selection of international artists. There will be a total of 60 slots available in 2014. 

There will also be 40 slots available to showcasing artists as part of our goNORTH Festival Tour. We are delighted to announce our 2014 partners are Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, Wickerman Festival and Loopallu. Only artists successfully selected to showcase at goNORTH will be considered for additional festival opportunities.   

A selection of acts will also feature on the Music Week goNORTH 2014 Compilation, which will be released direct to industry via leading trade publication Music Week.

All applications are forwarded to a broad panel of industry professionals to establish the final showcase list.

We will be open for submissions for 2015 in January - please sign up for the newsletter on the homepage to get first hand news and information.
