The Spring 2012 tour will run from the second weekend through the third weekend of May and is open to all secular genres of original music from all nationalities. There are 2-3 performance slots available for online Sonicbids members.



Within the UK all travel, accommodation, a minimum of one daily meal, promotion, and work permits are provided by CMEAS, CMEAS partners, and the venues themselves. CME also provides all the amps, drums (not snare and cymbals) and backline PA. Artists will receive a per diem of £10 GBP per musician. This amount can be increased if tour costs are covered and there is a remainder from show income. This profit will be split 50:50 between the artists and CME Artist Services. Any profits made by CME are then reinvested into the company (new equipment, vehicle maintenance etc).



Artists can further increase their personal revenue by retaining 100% of the sales of their CDs and other merchandise. CDs in the UK typically sell for around $10-15 each depending on whether LP or EP length.

Acts selected for CME's events have had little difficulty in returning to the UK for their own tours (Big Baby Ernie from New Jersey, Wabash Cannonballs from Chicago, Cafebar 401 from Holland, Gandhi from Costa Rica, Miss Quincy from Canada).



CME primarily books music pubs and clubs. There are no age requirements or limits for this event, though individuals under the age of 18 will not be permitted to drink alcohol at any of the venues on the tour (the drinking age in the UK is 18) and must supply a signed letter of permission from a parent or legal guardian allowing them to take part in this event.



Participants will need a valid passport for travel to the UK and may need a visa too, unless you are Commonwealth, USA or EU citizens. Work permits are provided by CMEAS who are licensed by the UK Border Immigration Agency but if you need a visa you have to apply for that yourself (we can offer guidance on how).
