goNORTH has announce the list of acts invited to showcase at goNORTH 2013. The thirteenth edition of Scotland’s leading showcase festival for the creative industries will return to Inverness over the 5 and 6 June, with over 70 acts set to perform across the city centre.
“We are delighted with the quality and range of acts invited to showcase at this year’s goNORTH”, said Director for Music Shaun Arnold. “The A&R process to establish our 2013 list proved particularly challenging as we received a record number of high quality submissions. As goNORTH continues to develop, each year the music element becomes increasingly competitive. We would like to offer a huge thank you to all the acts that applied to play this year and look forward to delivering our most ambitious showcase programme to date”.
As always, all elements of goNORTH are completely open and free to attend, although attendees are required to register free online here http://gonorthfestival.co.uk/register/ or at the event.
