First 44 bands confirmed for upcoming'Face The Beat : session 3' download compilation powered by Side-Line !

This morning 44 bands have received the confirmation that their track will be featured on the 3rd volume of the very successful free download compilation series “Face The Beat”. “Face The Beat : session 3” will be released in early December 2015 and will enter the mastering phase in the next 3 weeks after which it will be available on Bandcamp.

Since Side-Line is there to support new acts, this new compilation will again give you the opportunity to discover a lot of new, young, often unsigned acts from the electro scene. And who knows, maybe a future star.

Just like the previous free download compilation “Face The Beat : session 2”, also this one will see all donations go to a charity, namely a mobile kitchen in Athens, Greece which provides daily warm meals to the poor people in the city.

The track list is far from finished and will see a lot more bands being added, so if your band submitted material, don’t despair yet, the selections are ongoing until end of next week! We have again been flooded with submissions from all over the world and are still going through the listening process with 2718 submissions left to wade through. Yup, that’s a LOT.

Stay tuned for further updates!



Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
