The Argus has been profiling local music artists every week since September 2007 with the aim of putting the next generation of acts on the musical map.
In collaboration the British and Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM), which runs three sites across Brighton and Hove, we will feature artists honing their craft at the college.
Their counterparts studying music journalism will tell you everything you need to know about them and where to see them perform.
Argus editor Mike Gilson said: “Every Friday in the paper and online we’ll be profiling new bands and singers and online we’ll be showcasing a brilliant video of new music.
“I hope you show support for the fantastic talent we have by joining us in this celebration.”
