NETHERLANDS (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Its tough to make it in the music business in this day and age. Up and coming bands have to struggle to make themselves heard above the background cacophony of today's immersive media culture and even the truly talented have to find the right channels to reach their prospective audience. One possible path for up-and-comers is to play on the festival circuit, particularly in Europe where music festivals are big business, but how do you get booked for a festival? ETEP thinks it can help with that.
What is ETEP you ask? ETEP stands for the European Talent Exchange Program and what it does is simple. It selects artists from foreign countries and ensures them a slot in the lineups of partner-festivals giving them a chance to play in front of a large audience of potential new fans. The process is intended to foster a cooperative working relationship between European artists and industry professionals.
To become involved in the program, a participating act must be European and they must play at the The Noorderslag Weekend. Information on how to submit talent for inclusion in the program can be obtained at the Noorderslag website. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
