Epic Studios media and entertainment centre on Magdalen Street, Norwich, are on the hunt for artists and bands from Norfolk to fill supporting slots at gigs in 2017.
Rick Lennox, Live Music Manager at Epic, hopes to create a bank of local acts who could take to the stage alongside big names and showcase their talent to national promoters.
Mr Lennox said: 'It's really easy for local acts to get stuck in Norfolk, they start playing at pubs and they struggle to grow a wider audience. Here at Epic Studios we want to give people a chance to break out of the county and attract national acclaim.
'We're looking for solo artists and bands that have ambition. We're hopeful that connections will be made between the local musicians and the headliners and they'll end up going on tour together in the future.'
