Following the recent news of being selected as the official charity partner for the AIM Independent Music Awards, Help Musicians UK has also been chosen as charity partner for the upcoming Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF) taking place at various locations around the city.
Starting in 2013, the festival is now an annual highlight and packed with a diverse programme of events, with headliners including Basement Jaxx, Labrinth and more.
Running alongside the festival is the LIMF Academy programme, where young unsigned artists from Merseyside have the opportunity to perform in front of an audience of thousands on an international platform, plus take part in workshops aimed at career development within the music industry. Help Musicians UK are proud to be the official charity partner for the festival, supporting emerging artists and promoting musicians to take that next big step.
Yaw Owuse, Music Curator at LIMF said, "We are very happy to be partnering with Help Musicians UK. It makes total sense for us to align with an organisation that supports artists and musicians so tirelessly. We too strive to showcase and support working artists and musicians via LIMF generally and specifically via the LIMF Academy. We are very much looking forward to growing this partnership going forward."
Our team were also busy over the weekend at Green Man Festival, Wales, supporting Green Man Rising, a programme offering unsigned musicians and emerging artists a platform to shout about their music and win a chance to play in front of 10,000 people!
Ellie Moore, our Talent Programme Officer who spent four days at the festival in Brecon Beacons, said:
“One of the aims of the Green Man Rising and Green Man Trust is to champion the arts and give a platform to all performers. The festival has always championed new music, having showcased 1000+ emerging artists over the last 13 years. 2015 was no exception, and it was great to be there supporting musicians.”
