BASS Festival

News Source :


BASS Festival (British Arts and Street Sounds) is the UK’s only month long celebration of Black Music and Art. Every June, Birmingham comes alive with a phenomenal range of artistic activity. Produced by Punch, the festival has sought to support artists, organisations and promoters through commissions to produce an event or new piece of work specifically for the festival, with payments of between £500 and £3000 to make it possible. The 2011 Bass Festival theme is Revolution; be it artists who have changed the face of dance music, songs of protest, words or theatre that changes your life, the next generation or revolution as a dance move. We want to hear what musicians, dancers, spoken word or any other artists have to say on this theme. For more information on how to apply please click on the link below. The deadline for submission is 14 February. Details of all these opportunities and how to apply are on the Punch BASS Festival web page Let the Revolution begin!
