INES#talent has launched a call for applications for the 2020 edition of its talent programme; musical acts from Luxembourg and eleven other European countries are eligible to apply before 25 August 2019.

INES#talent is a programme enabling promising talents from twelve participating countries to drive their international careers forward by performing at showcase festivals all over Europe, including the Sonic Visions festival in Luxembourg. Each INES#festival nominates between three to ten promising and exportable artists from their own country to the INES#talent pool. In the following year, all INES#festivals will book foreign artists from the INES#talent pool.

As part of the INES talent pool, musicians thus increase their chances of being booked for a lineup of many up and coming artists from all over Europe. They will also have a chance to introduce their music to the organisers of the nineteen most reputable showcase festivals in Europe and improve their chances of success in future applications.

Most importantly, the selected artists will perform in front of music industry professionals due to the special business-focused nature of showcase festivals. There are around 100 performance slots available exclusively to artists in the INES#talent pool at twelve music industry events across Europe.
