 Booking 40 Sonicbids bands

Summary

POP Montreal has 40 slots reserved for Sonicbids artists. Selected artists will be compensated between $100-500.

The Opportunity

The 2014 festival will take place September 17th to the 21st in over 40 venues throughout Montreal. POP Montreal is a grassroots festival created and supported by people who love music and live performance. Founded in 2002 by fans and supporters of music, it has expanded in scope and vision every year, and will celebrate its 13th anniversary in 2014. 

Each year, the five-day festival presents more than 400 musicians. Delivering a bold cross-section of art forms and events, the festival includes symposium discussions, artisan and visual art exhibitions, workshops, fashion shows, film screenings, and, of course, a few all-night parties. For musicians, artists, fans, curators, critics, record labels and industry, POP Montreal is the North American festival that provides a dynamic introduction to the next generation of musical talent and independent art forms.

The Band

In 2013, more than 80 Sonicbids bands were selected for POP Montreal. 

Because POP Montreal's initiatives began from grassroots efforts, they remain open to all, willingly engaging all ideas and inspiration. They will not become some compromised showcase for untried bands and big record execs that feed off of them.

Past performers include:

Patti Smith, Bun B, Butthole Surfers, Tokyo Police Club, A-Trak, Beck, Interpol, Van Dyke Parks, The xx, Os Mutantes, Arcade Fire, Ratatat, Thee Oh Sees, Stars, Tapes n' Tapes, Burt Bacharach, Nick Cave, Joanna Newsom, Chromeo, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, Japandroids, JEFF the Brotherhood, Peter Hook, tUnE-yArDs, Yuck, and more.

Make sure your tracks are sounding their best, try mastering with LANDR, it's instant and free.
