We’re delighted to announce the line up for our Freshers Showcase 2018, featuring the talents of The Trusted, Foxgluvv and Jack Found and many, many more.

The line-up of ICMP students and alumni has been selected by our music industry careers team, The Hub, with the help of Polydor A&R Craig Shardlow. 

New and current students alongside alumni were invited to submit applications to play with a record-breaking number taking part.

The event will take place on Thursday 20th September at O2 Islington Academy as part of ICMP’s Freshers Fortnight. The event is free to attend for all students and alumni and £5 for non-students. 

We are also partnering with #TALENTBANQ to present one of their roster of fantastic artists, Joe Slater. On the night, one band will also be selected to perform for the ICMP/Talenbanq Refreshers Showcase at The Rat Bar in January 2019 alongside ICMP Tutor and Talentbanq artist Lisa Canny. 

All Freshers Wristband holders present will get free entry into the Freshers Showcase Raffle to win tickets to see Vulfpeck at O2 Brixton Academy.
