ABOUT THE COMPETITION
At SoundWaves Music Competition UK we live for music and were founded to give music artists who win the competition including bands, solo singers, duos and groups of all genres an unforgettable multinational platform to gain invaluable media exposure from and the opportunity to perform on some of the most iconic stages in the music industry. As part of the competition we have a fully staffed A&R segment with a management and events promotions arm. SoundWaves Music Competition 2020/21 is launching a UK wide band and singing competition, while simultaneously connecting artists with existing and new fans. In a music world today where live shows are one of the biggest aspects of the industry this competition is all about finding talent.
How it works
This years competition is a brand new format due to the current Covid-19 situation. We have decided to keep the music going but run an online competition which will be bigger and better than ever due to the greater reach of music fans online, the grand final will take place next year in person at one of the UK's best music venues, which will be an incredible show. The competition is formulated to view aspects of each potential act from all angles, so we can research the acts with the most potential. We are open to acts of all types and genres. What sets us apart from other music competition platforms is our ability to create a platform that links artists to A&R, live events, music producers and more as you progress through the competition, especially at the later stages. Each stage gets more prestigious and bigger.
Apply online by submitting a video or music track track to our A&R Department via the enter page. A&R will then select the talent which they feel is best from all submitted applicants and invite you to perform in the online stage below. During this stage acts are judged solely on musical ability and performance capabilities.
