South East England may not look like Austin, Texas on the surface but if you scratch the surface you will find a region teeming with emerging creative talent primed for industry!
The South By South East Music Collective aim to showcase the best emerging talent from the region to our contacts in industry in as many ways as possible – live online video broadcasting, radio, Zines, everywhere. As a collective of grass-roots music venues, promoters and journalists we are coming together as an alliance to promote the artists we feel industry needs to see. We are the new A&R that provide the scoop on the latest emerging acts worth watching.
In the first wave of events we’ll be promoting this summer we have a pioneering event at Traitors Gate Pub where we will be showcasing some of the best busking talent from the South East for a range of promoters and festival organisers who are looking for potential acts. The events will be over three Thursdays from the 9th to the 23rd June at Traitors Gate Pub in Thurrock, Essex and we will be unveiling information about the collective at these events too, so if you fancy a bit of networking then get down to Traitors Gate on Thurs 9th June to clock in some serious quality time with other artists, promoters, journalists and festival organisers. And unlike all those other industry network events you’ve been invited to lately, this one is free – no early bird tickets and no delegate lanyards, just raw inter-action!
See you there from 8pm – artists to be confirmed shortly – watch this space. If you want to perform on the 9th, 16th or 23rd June at Traitors Gate Pub please do send us an email ASAP: firstname.lastname@example.org x
