Futuresonic EVNTS - Submit Now

A Competition & Showcase for the best new, up-and-coming and ground breaking events from around the world.

EVNTS is a major strand of the Futuresonic festival, made up of a Manchester city-wide programme of affiliated events. It is a 'wiki-festival' designed to be more open than conventional festivals and so to reflect the creativity of today's music and arts events.

Futuresonic now invites any programmer, curator, promoter, label or artist group anywhere in the world to stage an independent event in EVNTS 2008, with the EVNTS Competition offering financial support for a limited number of events. Awards of £1,000 and £500 are available for people to stage an event as a part of EVNTS via the EVNTS Competition. Proposals will be judged by an independent panel of music, arts and industry figures.

All submissions to the EVNTS Competition will automatically be entered into the EVNTS 2008 showcase. You can take part in the EVNTS 2008 showcase without submitting to the EVNTS Competition.

If you do not enter the EVNTS Competition (or enter but are not successful) Futuresonic is unable to offer direct financial assistance, but can offer some support in securing venues, advice about sourcing technical equipment, etc. All participating events are included in the festival publicity, on the festival website, and in festival press releases. A list of available venues will be published on the futuresonic website soon. We recommend you confirm availability with the venue directly.

EVNTS Competition deadline -- Thu 7 Feb 2008, 5pm
EVNTS 2008 Showcase deadline -- Wed 20 Feb 2008, 5pm
