ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL: Want To Play At The Isle Of Wight Festival?

The Isle of Wight Festival competition runs nationally throughout the whole of May at every Walkabout venue, with the Grand Final taking place in London at Temple on Sunday 8th June to decide the winning act. Last year’s winning act FELLA came from Reading and performed on the Rising Stage.

All shows are for bands and solo artists to compete within together. On the day of your show you will be asked to give a performance of up to approximately 10 minutes so please prepare 3 short songs or 2 longer songs. The results for the first round will be decided by the Walkabout audience, so for your chance to make it through to the Grand Final in London on 8th June, please ensure you bring a crowd with you - entry is free of charge! The Grand Final results will be decided by a judging panel which includes representatives from the Isle of Wight festival, Walkabout and Future Music.

For more information and to enter please email your name, number and closest Walkabout venue to office@openmicuk.co.uk.  You can find all the Walkabout venues here. The closing date for the competition is 5th May 2014 and please note this competition is strictly for 18 year olds and over.
