Want to play Humber Street Sesh 2018?!

24th January 2018 // Humber Street Sesh 2018 // Festivals // Live Music

SO! Humber Street Sesh is back, bigger than ever in 2018!

And this year promises something a little different, with the announcement of an added Friday night (3rd August) to the usual one day festivities on Saturday (4th August).

Striding into its seventh year, with an expected footfall of 32,000 people attending on the Saturday it’s a fantastic opportunity to play to a new audience, and we’re expecting another amazing weekend!

Over 180 Artists will play over two days at 2018's event, as always focusing on the fantastic regional talent that Yorkshire possesses as well as the many artists who have featured at the weekly Sesh night at The Polar Bear in Hull throughout the year.

The festival also take submissions from national and international artists who, via the application form, have offered us exciting new talent since we introduced the application process in 2016!

Artist Liaison Daniel Mawer co-programmes the majority of the festival with festival director Mark Page, he offered a few words of advice to musicians applying to play this year’s event.

‘Please provide a good quality image, a succinct biography as well as appropriate links to your music. When writing your biography, you don’t need to give us a long history of how you all met, your favourite movies and what your favourite fruit is (strawberries if you’re asking), just a short piece that references what you sound like, who your influences are and what achievements you’ve had would be great!

Music videos really help us get a good idea of who you are, so please remember to include yours if you have a specific video you’re proud of.

Regarding live footage, please consider whether your mum’s shaky camera phone footage on YouTube best shows off your performance, if you don’t have a live video you’re really proud of, don’t worry! It’s better to leave that section blank and let your recordings do the talking.

If your application is successful we will be in touch during the month of February. Best of luck!’

Follow the link below to find the application form, you have until February 2nd to apply, with the line-up due to be announced in April!
