City Showcase: Music Festival – Free Wristbands
CITY SHOWCASE: LONDON 2012 | 9-13 October, Soho and Central London | Free with Wristband (Limited Availability)
City Showcase is an incredible platform for showing off the next big thing in music. The events have discovered unique and huge acts including: Amy Winehouse, Laura Marling & Hot Chip. This year’s lineup of buzz bands are on their way to something big.
Due to the increased number of artists and venues taking part, City Showcase is releasing an extra allocation of free wristbands.
Applications for wristbands can be made via the City Showcase website (closing date is Friday 28th September). Each wristband gives access to the full schedule of gigs and workshops plus discounts for other gigs, stores and restaurants in and around Regent Street. Without a wristband, entry to gigs and workshops will be £5 on the door on the day. An up to date event schedule can be downloaded from:
Alongside some classic music venues such as the Borderline, The 100 Club & Floridita, some unusual venues are taking part including The Apple Store on Regent Street, UNIQLO, Brasserie Zedel, the Gibson Guitar Studio and CS has secured an outdoor stage on Heddon Street.
Complementing the real world creative experience set to take over London’s iconic Soho, City Showcase London 2012 will have a strong digital element with displays of new digital technologies at Inamo on Wardour Street and other West End locations.
City Showcase is also hosting Festival Afternoons at The Phoenix 1.30pm-5-30pm Tuesday 9th to Friday 12th October featuring a music and multi media meeting hub in association with Naz Promotions/Rocklands and will feature daily film screenings, impromptu sessions, multimedia, network and free wi-fi.
