Enter the Open Stage!

Entry to this year’s Open Stage competition is now open – apply online here!

The Open Stage is – as it says on the tin – a stage open to all: soloists or groups; singers, musicians or both. With a billed slot at next year’s festival up for grabs, in return for just a 10 minute acoustic set, it’s a hard-fought competition.

Introduced to the festival programme in 2006, the Open Stage has, over its last 10 years, encouraged a vast array of new, promising or just hidden musical talent to the fore, and now many of its former participants appear throughout the programme – including our 2015 champions, Gleemro.

If this sounds like something for you, register via our website before April 24, or find our more. Good luck!
