Folk Alliance International 2019

Montreal Canada

Folk Alliance International (FAI) is the world’s largest gathering of the folk music industry and community. It has long held ties to the rich musical traditions of Australia, providing our local performers with a foothold into the North American festival market as well as direct access to agents, managers and media for touring acts.  In essence it is a wonderful launch pad opportunity for Australian artists. Each year the FAI organisers invite performers from all over the world to appear for an Official Showcase.

FAI 2019 will be in Montreal Canada from 13 to 17 February. You can read our take on FAI 2018 in Kansas City Missouri HERE. (FAI organisers today announced that FAI 2020 will be in New Orleans, Louisiana January 22 – 26)

Sounds Australia (SA) is an agency with a main aim of providing additional showcase opportunities for Australian artists whilst participating at international market events such as FAI. SA arranges a series of a further performances (unofficial showcases, day parties) for all Australian invitees at FAI, plus for any Australian artist who travels to FAI under their own steam. At these events, Australian artists are encouraged to pitch to labels, agents, brands, blogs and other festivals.

SA has arranged for a number of Australian and New Zealand artist spotlights – see the header banner and the links below.
