THIS IS THE APPLICATION FOR FUTURE ECHOES 2023 – 16 TO 18 FEBRUARY.
We are looking for all genres of music. We would love to have so much space that we can take in all the great music out there. Unfortunately, it’s not possible.
We have more goals we also want to achieve. For example, we will try to be as equal as possible. Getting 50% male and 50% female performances and we have some spots for Non-Binary artists as well. Feel free to add that to the questions we ask in the application process. We have also some dedicated spots for artists from Norrköping that are reserved for local artists.
We will give the accepted artists one gig. We hope to be able to give them extra gigs as well.
We look for original artists. We are going to be the festival where you find new cool artists.
What is a showcase festival? It’s not your normal festival. So this is not just to get a gig. Treat it as an opportunity to make a team around your artist career. A normal festival tries to get as many big names as possible to sell as many tickets as possible. A showcase festival is an event point where the music industry meets. Of course, many want their new connections to see their product, so a lot of shows are happening. In Future Echoes case, we will sell tickets to the normal audience to see these shows. The money from the tickets is to support the cost of the festival production. It’s not the main source of income for Future Echoes. Why we get the general people to see the shows is so that the artist has a chance to make the show as realistic as possible with an audience and gain a potential new fan base. The normal audience though is not our main priority and that is the reason why we can book a totally unknown name for our festival if we think that our industry people will have an interest in the artist. The artist we take confirm we also encourage to market themselves as much as possible both with the industry people that are there, but also with the general public that buys tickets to get a crowd in front of your stage. Of course, Future Echoes has media partners, posters, and marketing but there are over 100 artists and we give them all a push, but it’s also up to the artist to make it all happen.

We don’t pay any gig fees. The fee that you get is free passes to the whole conference. Access to our delegate database to contact people you find interesting at the festival. Also, we get each band a free delegate pass for their manager, etc that wants to tag along to represent the artist in these business meetings.
All shows are 40 min and then 20 min change over. No, we can’t let you in earlier to prepare your stage. On showcase festivals you expect the artist to be able to do a changeover and the line-check in 20 min. We have drumkits without breakables, amps, and mics. If you take a longer time, it will be on your time slot and you get less time to perform. We cut the concert at the exact time. And this is because if we run overtime the last artist might not get to play. We recommend the artist to train to do the changeover. The really professional ones usually do it in under ten minutes.
