Submissions for the 16th annual globalFEST (gF) showcase/flagship are now open. The first 15 editions of globalFEST have attracted capacity crowds. Last year’s sold-out gF event had approximately 1,500 attendees, which included more than 500 industry professionals including artistic directors, presenters, producers, agents, labels, and press. gF has a booth for all of its artists to share at the APAP conference. Tours and cultural exchanges that result from gF showcases have helped to build an ever-widening audience for global music and by extension, an increase in international cooperation and collaboration.
