We’re looking for an exciting new Australian talent to champion on an international scale. We’ll fly you to Iceland to play as part of the official lineup for Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik, joining the likes of PJ Harvey, Warpaint, Julia Holter, Kate Tempest, múm and Liima. The festival runs 2-6 November 2016.

As well as flights and accommodation, you’ll get to network with international industry professionals, spend a day recording in Sigur Rós’s Sundlaugin Studio, and hopefully get to witness the Northern Lights!

Back in Australia, you’ll get to spend three days recording, mixing and mastering your work at Studios 301.
