Apply To Play

Artist Registration for The British Country Music Festival 2019 in partnership with Music Glue

APPLICATIONS FOR 2019 IS NOW OPEN

Apply To Play is now open for The British Country Music Festival. We are passionate about supporting emerging talent. Please submit your act for consideration. All you need to do is register free via Music Glue before 1st April 2019. We review all submissions. Shortlisted artists get to perform on one of the various stages at next year’s festival. An email is sent to the successful applicants via email by 15 April 2019.

Notes for artists: This is a music festival showcasing established and emerging talent in the quickly growing UK Country and Americana scene.

We are passionate about the genres and want to give a platform for new singer/songwriters to build an audience and fan base. Of course, we will be programming established artists and we encourage them to act as mentors and role models for those working hard to break through

We listen to every single submission, so make sure the tracks you submit (we suggest two tracks), are your strongest. Try to choose songs that don’t have a 32 bar intro before you start to sing unless you are an instrumentalist! Your biography should include as much relevant information as possible to support why you are the perfect choice for THIS festival. We discard submissions with no written support. Provide professional and up to date photos. Finally, check that your song links work!

NB Some acts have been experiencing difficulty using the Music Glue Application process. You may also apply sending your details and link by email to programming@fitthebill.com.
