The Otherness have fallen for Leeds after travelling 7,000 miles to tour the UK looking for their big break. And they believe this could be it,

Lead singer and guitarist Martin Cativa, bassist and singing brother Gonzalo Cativa, drummer Pablo Gaggioni and lead guitarist Nico, are no strangers to the arena. They love playing Leeds and the Yorkshire region - including a recent 'Mad Friday' Christmas gig in Barnsley.

Frontman Martin, aged 27, said: "We are from Buenos Aires and have travelled 7,000 miles to be in the UK for a big break, playing our rock and roll music. We are so grateful to get this chance to play here.

"We fell in love with Leeds and the whole Yorkshire region and would like to provide the event with a foreign taste regarding the remarkable and universal appeal northerners still have all over the globe."


We have eight musical performers, each hoping to win a £2,500 cash prize plus casino bookings as well as an exciting contract with industry leading music and entertainment agency, Champions, that could see their entertainment career soar.

Excite and Entertain Leeds 2017 is also looking for a top new design talent and we have three finalists - an artist and two photographers.

First prize in the design category is also £2,500 cash, with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase their winning artwork on a billboard in Leeds city centre.
