The INNOVATION NETWORK OF EUROPEAN SHOWCASES, (INES), is a European cooperation project initiated by eight International showcase festivals including Sound City and Gigmit, the European digital platform for artist booking. These International showcases will host an Artist exchange where each partner festival will convert a part of its exciting live music line up into an INES#talent show. 10 artists that have no existing International exposure from each festival country will be nominated annually into a talent pool. They will have opportunities to perform at the partner festivals across Europe and they will also get digital training sessions organised by Gigmit. These showcase festivals are innovation hubs of the Music Industry and by connecting those hubs, INES will create a united and strong European music market.
