Be prepared for the return of Scouted in 2019, showcasing the wealth of South Australia's unsigned and emerging talent.
Presented by Umbrella: Winter City Sounds and the Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR), the third annual Scouted mini festival welcomes industry representatives and music fans to Adelaide's east end for a one-night showing of burgeoning SA artists and bands.
Across some of Adelaide’s most iconic east end venues, 16 emerging artists will perform over 4 stages at Crown and Anchor, Exeter, The Stag Public House and Sugar.
The performances coincide with Adelaide playing host to the annual national AIR Awards and Indie Con music conference. "It is not very often that Adelaide artists get the opportunity to play live in front of music industry influencers based on the eastern seaboard," Music SA CEO Lisa Bishop says.
"Scouted is a wonderful way for us to show off the fantastic home-grown talent we have here in South Australia.
"Each year our Scouted event delivers genuine business outcomes for artists including signings by publishers, artist managers and bookers as well as programming at major festivals, radio airplay and selection to play support for national touring artists."
In 2019, the Scouted line-up includes Homeward Bound, the awesome pairing of local hip hop legend Jimblah with vocalist Georgia Humphreys (Goji), Kenyan-born soul singer ELSY, local rock scene mainstays Wanderers, indie powerhouse trio Stacy Says, and pop-rock duo TOWNS.
Also vying for a merit badge and salute of approval will be OC3ANEYES, Local Revolution, Pinkish Blu and recent Adelaide 500 Bands on Track alumni The Montreals and Ricky Albert & the Belair Line Band.
All of these artists and more will play one of the four stages in Adelaide’s east end.
Scouted 2019 is on at Crown and Anchor, Exeter, The Stag Public House and Sugar (Adelaide) 26 July, as part of Umbrella: Winter City Sounds. Tickets on sale Wednesday 29 May. Click here for more information.
