INES Announces Full List of Nominated Artists for its 2020 INES#TALENT Programme

Following an unprecedented number of international applications from thousands of promising artists over the course of 2019, the Innovation Network of European Showcases (INES) has now announced the full list of nominated artists for its trailblazing INES#Talent Programme.

INES#TALENTS 2020 ANNOUNCED

In a unique initiative co-funded by the European Union and initiated by online booking platform, gigmit, a total of 133 acts – hand-picked by 19 participating festivals from 19 different European countries – will now have the opportunity to further their international careers by performing at multiple music festivals and industry showcases over the course of 2020.

Having received a record number of applications throughout July and August, each INES#festival has now selected up to fifteen promising and exportable artists from their own country to make up the official INES Talent Pool.

By becoming part of the INES Talent Pool, these budding musicians will now have the opportunity to perform at multiple ‘showcase festivals’ all over Europe, thereby introducing their music to senior industry professionals, leading event organisers and front-running promoters across the continent.

Each INES Talent that is booked for a showcase festival will receive a minimum €250 fee, travel and accommodation expenses, festival passes and one conference ticket, plus catering.

Showcase festivals are national music industry events that provide a platform for artist discovery, business networking and education. They combine live music performances, conference programmes and trade shows.

For a full list of participating showcase festivals and countries, see below or head to ines-festivals.eu.
