Play at the 2013 St Jerome’s Laneway Festival?! The Laneway line up is in need of one more brilliant act and, if you’re from the West, it could be you! As part of Footscray Community Arts Centre’s ongoing partnership with St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, The Very West is a special initiative designed to support emerging musicians from Melbourne’s western suburbs. The Very West offers local, unsigned and unknown artists and bands the opportunity to be heard by industry professionals, to play a special showcase event in front of fans and ultimately, to perform on stage at St Jerome’s Laneway Festival Melbourne in February 2013. Previous participants in The Very West have been picked up by labels and agents, given national support tours and of course, played at Laneway festivals, all just by being a part of The Very West.
