City musicians could be centre stage at festival

Rob George 7th Feb, 2018

ORGANISERS of Worcester Music Festival have now opened their band applications for 2018’s event.

The festival, set to take place from September 14 to 16, will be held in aid of Worcestershire Association of Carers, raising money to aid the support they provide to carers across the county.

Artists from every genre are invited to apply to the festival through their online application form that can be accessed via the festival’s website. Performers will be asked to donate their time to help bring the city’s music scene together, all in aid of a great cause.

Local promoters will be given charge of a night in one of the 20 venues located in the city centre, handpicking a line-up from the artists applying. The authentic crafting of the bill has always proven a success, the incredible high quality of the musicians taking stage drawing large crowds of both music fans and passer-by’s.

Last year, on its tenth anniversary, the festival hosted around 250 artists and drawing in crowds that neared the 1,000’s.

So far, the event has welcomed artists from across the globe, including European, American, Australian and Asian bands, promising a great taste of every genre worldwide.

Expanding the line-up last year to include both comedy and spoken word, there wasn’t a second that lacked entertainment, indicating that this year’s artistic array will be even more spectacular.

To date, the festival has supported 16 charities, raising almost £50,000. Last year, the team donated over £4000 to St Paul’s Hostel, enabling the charity to continue to provide 24-hour emergency care for those in need.

To apply to perform at the festival, visit www.worcestermusicfestival.co.uk/artistsapply to complete the online application form.
