Expressions of interest are now open for Up Next, a new paid performance opportunity for early career and emerging musicians in the Northern Rivers. The showcase event will be held at Byron Bay’s iconic live music venue The Great Northern Hotel in 2021.

Selected musicians will receive further career development opportunities including access to studio recording time, mentoring services by industry professionals and audio and video documentation from the event.

The project led by Arts Northern Rivers is funded through Create NSW’s Regenerate Initiative in response to the impact of COVID-19 experienced by the live music sector, particularly in the renowned live music destination of the Northern Rivers.

Emerging solo and group musicians from the Northern Rivers who can perform original material are encouraged to APPLY HERE! 

Expressions of interest close on the 2nd of February, 2021.
