Call for musicians:FIMIV 2008

The FIMIV is a music festival firmly established as one of Chile’s finest annual events. This four-day extravaganza of diverse music brings together people of all ages and backgrounds in celebration of the wealth and variety of world music from the south american southern cone region. Organisers are keen to hear from artists who would like to participate at the next festival that takes place in weekends through 2 weeks of November 2008. During these weeks selected bands will apply for grants in aid to take a festival national tour to cities in southern Chile (Osorno, Puerto Montt) and Easter Island as well. Applications must include recent recordings (audio and/or video), pictures and biography information. The festival usually provides artists fees and covers expenses in Chile, including local travel, accommodation, food and other incidentals. Artists from outside Chile will usually apply for external travel grants to make their own overseas travel arrangements. Deadline: 31st May 2008
Complete artist packets (cd, bio, photo, sound sheet) should be mailed to: FIMIV2008. Esmeralda 654, Placeres, Valparaiso, Chile. Attn: Festival Director L. Chirino Gálvez
