Mardi Gras and APRA AMCOS on the lookout for the next wave of queer talent

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and copyright organisation APRA AMCOS have teamed up to search for and present Australia’s next generation of queer music artists in an Express Yourself – Queer Discovery showcase series.

With a joint goal of fostering emerging queer creatives across Australia, the organisations have joined forces to feature rising music talent across three events in coming months.

Express Yourself – Queer Discovery will see two emerging LGBTQI+ artists perform at each showcase alongside an established headliner to a room of industry heavyweights and the general public.

A panel of guest judges from the LGBTQI+ community and music industry will select two of the emerging artists to perform at a Mardi Gras event in 2021.

Said Mardi Gras CEO Albert Kruger: “Mardi Gras is invested in the development of LGBTQI+ artists and we hope the experience has a lasting impact on the careers of the performers.”

So if you think you’re a budding Troye Sivan, Courtney Barnett or Tones And I, now is your chance to throw your hat – or whatever other accessory you may have on you – into the ring.
