Sounds@Sunset musician call out

A team of young producers are on the hunt for young musos to fill their Sounds @ Sunset program this year. 

The team is looking for 16 acts to play sets at five events across the Dry season, with the first one kicking off on May 17.

Expressions of interest for the paid gigs are open to Darwin-based soloists or bands aged under 25.

The only requirements are the acts must be able to supply their own instruments and perform a 20-40 minute set suitable for a chilled-out family audience. 

The Sounds @ Sunset project teams up young producers with mentors to learn the ins and outs of pulling off a professional music event.

Musician Tali Rail performed at one of the beach-side gigs last year and encouraged others to get involved.

“The event was really well organised and on the night the team were really supportive,” she says.

“It’s a really nice opportunity to perform and it had a nice atmosphere and is a good family friendly event.”

The 16-year-old says she scored another gig out of the performance and it was a great chance to meet new people.

“I got contacted to play another gig by someone who was watching, and it was great meeting new people,” she says.

EOIs will be open throughout the year, with the last gig in September, so there’s plenty of time to refine your set or write some new tunes.
