In case you missed our previous articles on FBi’s Northern Lights Competition, this Lights competition is an opportunity to showcase young Australian talent on an international stage. The winning act will perform at the prestigious Iceland Airwaves Music Festival in November, joining the likes of PJ Harvey, Warpaint, Julia Holter, Kate Tempest andmúm on the official festival lineup.

For us, that sounded like a really rewarding experience [and] it would offer artists an opportunity to grow in ways that they might not get here in Australia”, read our full chat here
