MOBO Tour 2012 Comes To Bristol !
MOBO, Urban Development and PRS for Music Foundation in association with BMF Urban are pleased to announce The MOBO Tour 2012 comes to Bristol on 28th February!
This free tour travels to eight cities across the UK, offering audiences the opportunity to see some of 2012’s freshest, new, emerging talent on stage and attend industry workshops and seminars (via Industry Takeover @ MOBO Academy). It’s also a chance for undiscovered talent right across the country to get involved in the MOBO Unsung competition. Thanks to funding from Arts Council England, PRS for Music Foundation and the BMF all of this will be provided for FREE.
Kicking off on February 22 in Birmingham and hitting Bristol on February 28, the tour will travel across the country and bring together the best of the UK’s new Urban talent. The first names to be announced are breakthrough MC Lady Leshurr (tipped to do big things in 2012 by RWD Magazine and Itunes) and MTV Brand New pick for 2012, seven piece hip-hop-rock collective Clement Marfo & The Frontline. A further five names will be confirmed soon!
The MOBO Tour is also creating the opportunity for brand new, undiscovered talent to win the chance to perform on stage through MOBO Unsung. This nationwide competition is open to enter NOW and all would-be performers need to do to get started is upload a video of themselves performing to YouTube and email the link, embed code and details of which region they live in, to email@example.com.
Entries will be hosted on www.mobo.com/mobotour for the public to view and a judging panel of industry experts will then select a winner from each UK region, who will take the stage as part of the tour in their local area.
Deadline for entries to MOBO Unsung in 25th January
