Your chance to star at music festival

Rob George 8th Feb, 2019

ORGANISERS of Worcester Music Festival inviting artists to apply to perform at 2019’s event.

The festival, set to take place between September 13 and 15, will be a charity event with all proceeds being donated to a cause that supports the Worcestershire community.

Artists from every genre are invited to apply to play the festival through an 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 25 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 the stage drawing large crowds of both music fans and passers-by.

In recent years, organisers have expanded the line-up to include comedy spoken word and a host of workshops aimed at the whole family. The festival hosts around 250 performances and attracts thousands of visitors from across the country.

Festival director Anthony Robbins said: “We love listening to the vast array of artists who apply and we always come away feeling incredibly positive about the amazing quality of the acts in our local music scene and beyond. We would encourage artists to put themselves forward for consideration.”

To date, the festival has supported 17 charities, raising almost £55,000.

Last year, the festival donated £5,307.15 to the Worcestershire Association of Carers, enabling the charity to support carers across the county through a number of initiatives.
