For the first time, Off The Record will be staging live music showcases which will allow for some of Scotland’s youngest and most exciting emerging talent to perform in a professional setting.

These will follow on from the daytime conference at both Edinburgh and Dundee and will be in front of an audience made up of Off The Record attendees, the general public and music industry professionals. This is the perfect opportunity for young artists and bands to make themselves known within the Scottish music scene.

If you’re an artist or in a band and are interested in performing at one of the showcases, you can fill out an application form here.

Applications close on Monday 15 October at 5pm.
