TYCA Festival - Brought to you by Arts Taunton

Calling Young Bands and DJs!

TYCA festival is looking for bands and DJs to perform on our main festival day - 13/07/2024


What type of music are you looking for?
We are open to all styles and genres - no really we mean anything! From thrash metal to experimental jazz, drum n bass to acoustic folk, we set no limits to your creativity.
We want to hear from young artists whatever stage you are at in your journey. Whether you have toured for years or you are yet to perform live we hope to create the perfect opportunity for you. Mentoring from professionals before, during and after the festival are available to all applicants. 
Who can apply?
TYCA Festival exists to create opportunities for artists who are 25 or under in the Taunton area. 
There is no lower age limit. We understand that some groups might have a range of ages so we will accept applications from bands where at least half of the band members are 25 or under.
We do not set firm geographical limitations on where artists can come from but we will prioritise applicants who can demonstrate a realistic connection with the Taunton area.
We encourage people from all backgrounds to apply for this opportunity particularly those currently underrepresented in the arts.

How do you decide who gets this opportunity?
We will decide our lineup at our youth board programming meeting. We will attempt to create opportunities for all applicants although we have limited resources and may not have space for everyone to perform. 
There is no “winning formula”. We will try to programme the widest spread of artists possible and prioritise applicants who show originality - our theme this year is “Out There!”
