Your Chance To Your Chance To Play The O2! Play The O2!

Thousands of unsigned musicians have been eagerly awaiting its return, and now the wait is almost over - auditions across the country for Live and Unsigned have already begun and reach Edinburgh Corn Exchange on Saturday 29th January and then head to Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Saturday 5th February. Live and Unsigned is the UK’s biggest unsigned music competition for original artists and it’s open to all genres. So whether you’re into Pop, RnB, Punk, Indie, Alternative, Rock or Acoustic, the competition has it all.

Live and Unsigned searches for the UK’s best unsigned acts and all entrants are auditioned live, which is what makes it so unique, there are no demos or recordings. Those who make it through the audition stage will get to perform to industry judges, A&R and celebrity guests in some of the UK’s most prestigious venues and those who make it to the Grand Final will perform at the Live and Unsigned Festival at the 02 in London!

Each year the competition prize pool gets bigger and better as acts take to the stage and battle it out for equipment, festival slots, clothing, studio time and master classes. There’s over £100, 000 in prizes up for grabs this year including a world tour! Competing acts will have the chance to perform at Tour Music Fest in Rome’s Piper Club where artists like the Beatles and Pink Floyd have all performed. They’ll also have the chance to perform in Australia and America, as well as competing in Asia’s biggest Rock festival, I Rock. Last year’s judges included Slade’s legendary front man Noddy Holder, Radio 1’s Annie Nightingale, Kerrang’s Alex Baker and R’n’B star Shola Ama. Judges confirmed for this year include Radio 1’s Tom Deacon, TV presenter Terry Christian and Nigel Clark from Brit pop band Dodgy.
