International Showcasing Events 2020-2021
The International Showcase Fund for Artists supports artists, bands and ensembles to perform at industry-facing showcase festivals and conferences such as; SXSW, Womex, Folk Alliance International, MIDEM, Eurosonic, A3C, Reeperbahn and many more.
*We are no longer accepting applications for SXSW 2021*
Many international showcase events such as Reeperbahn Festival and MIDEM have pivoted to digital or are running physical and digital hybrid events, and ISF partners expect more do to so due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and challenges.
Furthermore, we expect new online events and virtual export models to launch in the coming months.
ISF partners are keen to support UK talent to take advantage of digital platforms and new export opportunities and have therefore pivoted our grants scheme to support artists, bands and ensembles to engage in virtual and digital industry-focussed international showcase events.
