RedGorilla Music Fest Now Accepting Showcase Submissions -- Enter Now

By SOP newswire

RedGorilla Music Fest is now accepting showcase submissions. Whether you are a band or solo artist, you can submit your music for consideration to showcase at RedGorilla Music Fest in Austin, TX from March 14-17, 2007. Go to http://www.redgorillamusic.com for an artist submission form. Submissions are accepted online through Sonicbids or through the mail.

RedGorilla Music Fest launched four years ago as the DreamScapers Artist Showcase and has grown each year under that name. This year, the event has a new name -- RedGorilla Music Fest -- but its mission is the same: to promote up-and-coming independent music in all genres and help independent artists further their careers. Approximately 150 bands and solo artists will participate in shows in venues on 6th Street in Austin, Texas. RedGorilla showcases will take place from Wednesday, March 14, to Saturday, March 17, in clubs on 6th Street, right in the heart of all the action. The event continues to be a "No Badge Required" event. It is free to attend and is open to the general public.

RedGorilla Music Fest takes place during one of the most important music weeks in the year. It is the music industry's premier destination for the year, and thousands of fans and music industry professionals descend upon Austin to network and check out new talent at the various music festivals around town. RedGorilla Music Fest offers showcase slots to bands and solo artists so that they can take advantage of this excellent opportunity. RedGorilla Music Fest is all about showcasing and making it the best experience possible for the artist and the audience.

Over the years, some of the hottest up-and-coming acts have been showcased by RedGorilla Music Fest. As a result, RedGorilla Music Fest has received international media attention and a reputation for being the showcase for new music.
