Springboard Live: Call for artists

Springboard Live are looking for England’s best new bands and artists to go on a fully funded tour this February!

If selected, you’ll be paid to go on a tour across England with some of the most exciting new music acts out there.

Gigs will be held at the Roundhouse in London, Band On The Wall in Manchester, Colston Hall in Bristol and Ely in Cambridgeshire and you could join the bill!

All of the gigs are put on entirely by people aged 18-25, who are completely reimagining what live music nights should be like.
