Oct 1, 2018

Several thousand bands and musicians from the participating 12 countries (Austria,
Germany, Luxembourg, Great Britain, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Spain,
Slovenia, Hungary, Czech Republic) have applied for the second year of the
INES#talent support program. Now the 103 new #talents have been announced –
including Mavi Phoenix, Hope and ShaoDow!

Applications were being accepted until July 31, 2018 which were available to all bands and
musicians from the participating countries. From all applications received, the festival
partners have now nominated the best young musicians from their respective countries
for INES#talent 2019. And now that three new members have been added into the
network since this past June, INES#talents from Hungary, the Czech Republic and Italy
will officially be there for the first time!

With INES#talent in 2019, the most promising young artists in Europe will have the chance
to perform at up to 12 showcase festivals and thus present themselves to an international
audience, but above all to the international music industry.
A total of over 100 slots will be available exclusively for the sponsored artists at all
participating events in the coming year.

The participating festivals are:
● c/o pop, Germany
● Budapest Showcase Hub, Hungary
● Enea Spring Break, Poland
● Linecheck, Italy
● Live at Heart, Sweden
● Liverpool Sound City, United Kingdom
● MENT Ljubljana, Slovenia
● Monkey Week, Spain
● Nouvelle Prague, Czech Republic
● Sonic Visions, Luxembourg
● Waves, Vienna, Austria
● Westway LAB, Portugal

The first cycle of the young talent promotion programme is still underway – with
particularly successful participants such as We Bless This Mess, Cari Cari and Haiku
Garden.
