Hi everyone, A number of artists have contacted us to request an extension to the application deadline for the Showcase Scotland Expo Opportunities for 2023. We understand that a lot of you are in the middle of a very busy festival season and this combined with travel issues and flight cancellations has made it very difficult to find time to get these applications done. We don’t want anyone to miss out just because they are out there performing so we can going to extend the deadlines for Germany, Denmark and The Visit to 1st September.
We have been working hard to establish new festivals of Scottish Music in Germany and are pleased to let you know that the dates are the 15 – 18 of June 2023 and the 30th of November to the 3 of December 2023.
These are in indoor venues and artists will be paid to perform.
If you would like to perform at one of these then please fill in THIS application form and get back to us by midnight on the 1st of September.
Denmark – Showcase Scotland at Baltoppen Live 2023. Part of our Scotland across Europe programme in 2022 saw the first festival of Scottish Music take place in Copenhagen in May of this year. The Tønder Festival in Denmark is this summer presenting a Spotlight on Scotland featuring 11 Scottish artists. We are delighted to say that Baltoppen Live, who were looking at a bi-annual festival, have after attending the Visit at the end of May this year, opted to make the festival annual. It will take place on the 11th and 12th of May 2023 and artists are invited to apply HERE. The deadline for applications is midnight on 1st of September.
The Visit 2023 – Taking place in Perth and Peebles the next edition of the Visit will run between the 26 and 29th of April 2023 (inclusive), some performances will be open to the public and some closed to delegates only. The visitors are all from North America and Canada and will comprise festivals, venues, agents and promoters as well as some press agents. Several artists have gone on to secure fantastic tours of both nations as a result of previous editions and we expect this to be the same this year. Open to export ready artists the deadline for applications is the same as the above (allowing you to cut and paste your applications!) at midnight on 1st of September The application form is HERE.
