NEXT BIG THING Tickets
HMV announce the launch of a brand new live music initiative - Next Big Thing, an annual festival which aims to showcase and celebrate a broad and diverse range of new and exciting breakthrough artists drawn from across the music spectrum in the UK and Ireland and internationally.
The inaugural Next Big Thing, will run for over a week between 5th - 14th February. Six London venues will host this live event: the Borderline, the Camden Barfly, Heaven, the Jazz Café, the Relentless Garage and ULU and will feature up to 50 artists representing different genres, from singer-songwriters and indie-rock bands to urban and pop through to crossover classical talent who are either fresh to the scene, critics' choice or who have been 'bubbling-under' and are tipped to breakthrough in a big way in 2010.
This focus on diverse new talent makes Next Big Thing unique in the live arena, and, coming so early towards the beginning of each year, it's hoped that it will effectively come to be viewed as the official start of the festivals season.
Each venue will host three acts per night and, in keeping with the aim of introducing new music to the public, all gigs will cost the bargain price of a flat Â£10 (incl. of booking fee), whichever the venue and whoever the artist bill.
Over twenty artists are already confirmed, and more will be added to the bill progressively over the coming days.
