Excellent opportunity to associate your brand with a young, urban audience through sponsorship of MEmusic Online & On Tour.
MEmusic from metro.co.uk is currently looking for a partner for their Online and On Tour competition. The aim is to find the next big music act in 2009. Unsigned acts can upload their tracks and earn money through user downloads on MEmusic. We recruit the unsigned acts through the paper and on-line. The top 10 will be put to a public vote and the top 5 go into a live grand final in front of a panel of expert judges. The prize is TBC - last year's prize was a 7 day UK tour supporting Dodgy.
Build awareness of your brand amongst young Metro readers and become associate with new music.
