Artists wanted for this year's Evolution Emerging
Evolution Emerging will soon be back and Generator are once again looking for the best up-and-coming North East talent to get involved.
Evolution Emerging has built up a reputation for itself as the biggest festival for emerging music in the region, and it will take over several venues in Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle on Saturday May 23.
The day will see 40 emerging artists playing as well as special guest headliners and artists unearthed through Generator’s Tipping Point blog.
After being nominated for “Best Event Tyneside” at 2014’s Journal Culture Awards, and last year’s event being a sell-out, this year will no doubt be an unmissable day for fans of new music.
Bob Allan, Artist Development Manager at Generator, said: “We’re really proud to be in our seventh year of Evolution Emerging and with our 2014 event selling out it proves that people have an appetite to discover the next big thing. Also, Generator’s ability to programme the best emerging talent in the region and beyond has provided a fantastic platform for new acts to follow in the footsteps of Lulu James, Mausi, Beth Jeans Houghton, The Lake Poets, Nadine Shah, Lisbon, We Are Knuckle Dragger and Boy Jumps Ship. Don’t miss out and apply now.”
Last year’s headliners included The Lake Poets, who have recently flew to the US to record their debut album with Eurythmics star Dave Stewart and Boy Jumps Ship.
To be in with the chance of a live slot at this prestigious event, bands are encouraged to apply via www.generator.org.uk/evolutionemerging.
