2Funky Arts would like to commission 10 new music acts (each featuring 2 artists or more) to collaborate, write new material and perform as part of Festival2Funky 2019 (12-15 minute set). In return, each act will be paid £100 and receive valuable publicity.

Deadline for applications is 30 March 2019. Artists must be aged 18+, Leicester or Leicestershire based, and available for festival dates. Work produced must be in keeping with our festival genres, and performances can feature some solo tracks in addition to
