goNORTH Seeks Live Showcase Photographers

goNORTH festival organisers are looking for photographers across all levels of experience to cover the goNORTH live showcases in Inverness on June 9 and 10. All submitted images will then go to a wider panel with the winning photographer securing a pass for Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival.

If you would like the opportunity to showcase your work to a wider audience and be the official goNORTH Stage photographer at one of the finest independent festivals in the country, please register your interest by emailing info@creativehi.com

goNorth was launched in 2001 to provide a platform for artists from the north of Scotland to showcase for music industry and media representatives on their own patch. Originally hosted in several venues on Aberdeen’s Belmont Street, we briefly relocated to Dundee, before settling in Scotland’s most northerly city, Inverness. The event has since developed into one of the country’s leading Creative Industries Festivals, celebrating our tenth anniversary last year with our most ambitious and successful event to date. This year we are looking forward to bringing together a wide selection of leading creative industry figures and delivering a world class programme of panels, workshops, industry screenings, training opportunities, Q&A sessions and a global marathon of live showcases.

We also recently announced some exciting changes to this year’s event; after five successful years programming new music at RockNess, we are taking goNORTH back to its roots in 2011 and supporting emerging talent at five of the finest independent festivals in the country, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, The Wickerman Festival, Loopallu, Summer In The City 2011 and Wizard Festival.

This development means that all acts selected to showcase at goNORTH 2011 will also get the opportunity to showcase at one or more of the independent festivals featured on the goNORTH Festival tour.

We are also touring a diverse selection of films made with our partners MG Alba, FilmG, The Scottish Documentary Institute, Digital Shorts and a host of exciting independent filmmakers across the Festival Tour.

In recent years goNORTH has featured an international array of talent spanning not only Scotland and the wider UK, but also the USA, Russia, Scandinavia, The Netherlands, Australia and Japan.

We pride ourselves on generating a dynamic and vibrant environment where organisations and individuals across all levels of experience can get together, make connections, share ideas and resources, and most importantly, have a really great time.

As always, all panels, worshops and live showcases are free and open to the public, with industry and media requested to register.



About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
