Back in February we ran the Northern Exposure INmusic Competition Final in association with Pirate Studios, Musicians Against Homelessness and EuFest. The final was held in Salford, Manchester at Pirate Studios event space.

From an amazing shortlist, six lucky bands The Americas, Hands Off Gretel, Himalayas, Deep City Diver, False Heads and The Receivers played on the night to compete for paid flights, entry in to the festival, camping and a 6pm slot on the main stage of the INMusic Festival #13 2018 where Queens of the Stone Age headline. False Heads from London were the band who impressed the judges and took the prize.

The INmusic Festival is Croatia’s biggest open-air festival, and is held in the country’s capital Zagreb. Inviting a selection of international rock and indie artists that have included Kasabian, Florence and the Machine, PJ Harvey and Jake Bugg to the banks of Lake Jarun, the festival has established itself as one of the best on the continent, thanks to its on-point lineups and inclusive vibe.

Curating and putting on this competition this year was an absolute pleasure. We were inundated with entries from a huge number of very talented bands which made the whole process very difficult – thanks to every single band who entered. We’d like to thank INmusic for the fabulous opportunity and Dermot O’ Flynn from Eufest who has ran the competition in the years previously and gave us plenty of invaluable support and advice. We’d also like to give a big thanks to Pirate Studios, who came all the way from London to Manchester just to film these videos and put them together for us – absolutely amazing job and very much appreciated. Thanks goes to Musicians Against Homelessness our chosen charity of whom we are raising awareness for and our brilliant judges Stella Grundy, Aaron Keith Stewart, George Holmes and Hayley Smith.
