Application Stage


Music acts and artists in all forms who believe they have what it takes to carve a career in the music industry and perform in the best and most prestigious venues within the UK are invited to apply online to be in with a chance of competing in their chosen competiton city.
 
First Audition Stage
 
Once the closing deadline for the application stage has been met a team of judges will go though each application and decide which acts they would like to see competing in the competition. These acts will be contacted and invited to the First Audition Stage where they will perform a closed audition in front of the professional judging team. During this stage the artists will be judged solely on musical ability and performance capabilities. Verbal feedback will be given to you after your performance and we only use carefully selected judges who's goal is to help and grow the artists they discover.
 
Live Audition Gig
 
The acts which scored the highest points at the First Audition Stage will be invited to perform at the Live Audition Gig in front of expert judges and a capacity crowd within an intimate music venue in their city. The judges will be looking for how well the acts can perform to a crowd while keeping musically in check. The acts which show the best musical ability and gain the most audience votes will proceed to the toughest challenge within the competition known as the Checkpoint Stage.
 
Checkpoint Stage
 
The lucky acts that successfully finished highest in the Live Audition Gig will face a top panel of musical experts and industry professionals who will decide which acts get the opportunity of a lifetime to perform on the main stage at some of the best venues within the UK including O2 Academy Newcastle, O2 Academy Leeds and O2 ABC Glasgow in front of famous guest judges and performers in a bid to win the top prizes and opportunities. Only the best and highest standard acts will make it.
