FESTIVAL season may be drawing to a close but plans are afoot in Sheffield for the next Outlines Festival and local talent is being sought.
From the team behind Tramlines festival, Outlines will return to Sheffield City Centre for its second year from March 3-4, with regional and breaking talent featuring heavily on the bill.
Emerging artists from across the region are being encouraged to apply to play at the event, with a number of slots available in all festival venues.
Applications are open now via outlinesfestival.com
The full list of applicants will be processed by a range of music industry experts, and successful artists will be invited to join the event alongside a host of household names, with the headline bill to be announced soon.
Outlines programmer, Kate Hewett, said: “New and unsigned artists are crucial to keeping a festival vibrant and exciting.
“With 2015’s Outlines bill, we were able to introduce a whole host of impressive emerging talent to festival-goers, and we’re looking forward to doing the same for our second year.”
Next year’s event has been expanded to featire up to 150 artists and a brand new, two-day programme of events.
“Outlines will now also be accessible to the region’s younger music-lovers, with revised age restrictions allowing access to those aged 14 and up,” added Kate.
Outlines takes place across a number of Sheffield venues, including the Leadmill, Plug, Queens Social Club and The Harley.
Last year’s event saw UK hip-hop pioneer Roots Manuva mingling with emerging and unsigned talent.
Line- up announcements will be made soon.
Discounted super-earlybird tickets are available for just £10 while stocks last.
