Ranging from the big, outdoor ones such as Leeds/Reading, Bestival and Latitude to urban, indoor events such as Swn Festival and Tramlines, and not forgetting the smaller scale local festivals, The Unsigned Guide contains contact details for more than 180 UK festivals that have stages or slots for unsigned bands & emerging artists.
Our Festival listings will tell you the location & month of the event, plus details of stages dedicated to new & emerging bands and how to get on them.
Whether it’s sending your demo by a specific date, filling in an application form or entering a competition, we’ll provide the necessary info to make sure your band gets the most out of festival season.
Live performance is one of the most important aspects of any music career and there’s no doubt that practice makes perfect! However, expanding your knowledge about the economics of the people that put on your gigs, tips to build your fanbase and audience, and learning more about the services that a reputable sound engineer can offer will also help massively.
Our Advice hub is full of practical advice provided by the likes of Musicians’ Union, BBC Introducing and other experienced promoters & booking contacts to make sure your live gigs are an unforgettable experience.
