Bands wanting to play a showcase at XpoNorth 2016 have just over a week to apply.

The Creative Industries Festival takes place in Inverness on Wednesday 8th – Thursday 9th June, but applying to perform as part of the live music element closes on Friday 1st April 2016 at midnight.

Film, Music and Writing are all open for entries, and bands and artists may also be considered to showcase at the XpoNorth Music Seedlings Stage at Belladrum Tartan Heart.

Bands will need a link to their music, as well as a decent quality picture. Submissions and event registration can be made by visiting
