MOBO Tour takes over Bristol
PUBLISHED: 14:00 12 January 2012
THE freshest emerging artists in Urban talent will be touring the UK this year, and will step on stage at Bristol's Watershed.
This free tour is set to travel to eight cities across the UK, offering audiences the opportunity to see some of 2012’s new acts on stage and attend industry workshops and seminars.
It will also be a chance for undiscovered talent right across the country to get involved in the MOBO Unsung competition.
Kicking off in February, the tour will travel across the country and hit Bristol on February 28, bringing together the best of the UK’s new Urban talent. Some of the big names are breakthrough MC Lady Leshurr and MTV’s brand new pick for 2012, the seven piece hip-hop-rock collective Clement Marfo and The Frontline.
In addition to bringing the pick of 2012’s most hotly tipped talent, 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.
A team of radio DJs will select the MOBO Unsung winner from the eight regional finalists. This winner will then join an on-line Battle Of The Bands competition where they will compete against other newcomers put forward by established artists, with a public vote to select the ultimate winner.
The show will take place at Bristol’s Watershed in Canon’s Road, on February 28, and if free of charge.
