Music Industry Judges

Music industry judges are at every stage of the competition from the auditions to the Grand Final.

Last year’s competition included judges that work for the three major record labels Universal, Warner and Sony. The judges become more prestigious as the competition progresses.

What better opportunity to get music industry feedback and get your music heard by the right people?

The judges’ role is to identify those acts that have the potential to be signed as an artist in today’s current market.

See below some of the music industry judges who have judged past and present for the Future music competitions. By entering Open Mic UK you could be performing in front of these judges:
