The AmericanaFestUK Showcases take place on Wednesday 31st January 2018. For the third year running the showcases will be held across multiple venues on the evening of the first day of the conference.





The showcase event is increasingly popular way for artists to perform in front of an audience combined of both industry figures and an always enthusiastic public! Showcasing as part of our combined Conference, Awards and Music Festival can open doors and help our artists make connections across the Americana community. 25 live acts performing original music at some of Hackney’s finest live venues – AmericanaFestUK is an absolute highlight of The AMA-UK’s live music events and one that you won’t want to miss!
Entry to all AmericanaFestUK venues will be by wristband

“AMA-UK was the highlight of the year! Being lucky enough to be chosen to play a showcase, is a privilege that is already leading to opportunities I wouldn’t have had access to previously, and with the high quality of contacts that Americana is becoming known for. True servants of groundbreaking music and true masters of advancement of their artists.”
Yola Carter, AMA-UK Member. Recipient of Artist Of The Year award 2017
