About HCMF

HCMF Shorts

HCMF Shorts is a series of short informal performances which this year will take place all day on Monday 24 November 2008. They provide up-and-coming musicians with a valuable platform to perform for members of the public, media and key music industry representatives at the UK’s leading new music Festival.

This year the HCMF Shorts series will be accompanied by an Industry Marketplace where emerging artists will be able to meet promoters, record labels and publishers and find out about opportunities available to them.

Proposals are welcomed from all types of performers, and works can be especially composed or existing pieces. There are no age limits.

Closes Monday 02 June 2008
