Sydney’s FBi Radio has just announced the launch of its first ever national competition to promote up-and-coming Australian artists in the international market. With the backing of the Australian Government, the station is taking one solo producer/artist and a band on an adventure to Iceland Airwaves Festival. The music festival held in Reykjavik in November is renowned for its impressive lineup and for showcasing some of the best music from around the world. In 2011 and 2012 FBi Radio took two Sydney-based solo producers to Iceland Airwaves and this year they are extending the invitation to artists right across Australia.
Previous winners of Northern Lights include Oliver Tank, who recently supported Lorde on her national Australian tour, and Rainbow Chan who featured in the epic ‘Since I Left You’ Vivid/Live show at Sydney Opera House.
Northern Lights is open for entries from June 26 to July 21. To be eligible to apply you must be an emerging solo artist/producer or band and an Australian resident. To enter visit www.fbiradio.com/northernlights
