The Innovation Network Of European Showcases, or INES, is a European cooperation project by leading European showcase festivals and Gigmit, the European digital platform for artist booking.
The programme enables emerging artists to build their international careers by showcasing around Europe.
FOCUS Wales worked in partnership with INES and selected the Welsh bands for this opportunity.
The five artists representing Wales for the 2021-22 season will be:
Twice nominated for the Welsh Music Prize nominees HMS Morris who release new single ‘Partypooper‘ via Bubblewrap Collective next month.
Balafon master and traditional drummer from Guinea, West Africa N’famady Kouyate.
Benji Wild, Grime MC/DJ/Artist and frontman for Grime/Rock/Punk group Astroid Boys.
Charming and melodic indie pop collective Campfire Social, who are to take part in the Zandari Festa online festival in partnership with FOCUS Wales, this weekend.
Buoyant and dynamic multi-instrumentalist Jack Found.
