The UK’s premiere vintage festival is this year set to discover the nation’s top new vintage talent for the first time, with the launch of the inaugural Twinwood New Talent 2015 competition.
Open to musicians and singers who best capture the iconic sounds and styles of music from the 1920s to the 1960s, the finalists will battle it out in front of a huge live audience at Twinwood Festival itself, the year’s biggest celebration of vintage UK culture. The final will take place on Saturday, August 29th, with cash prizes on offer as well as a unique opportunity for some exposure from a top UK music PR company.
Presented by legendary big band leader John Miller, the competition will also be hosted by Twinwood favourite Dusty Limits, who will be joined by a panel of four leading music industry experts.
Enter the Competition
Entries for the contest will be accepted between 30th April and 31st July. To enter, simply email a link to a YouTube performance to firstname.lastname@example.org along with an artist photograph.
Those entries will be displayed on the Twinwood Festival Facebook page, before being assessed by an initial panel of experts who will decide on the five finalists to perform at the Festival itself! The judges will take into consideration both the talent, look and popularity of each entrant, so acts are encouraged to get their fans to voice their support when they are posted to the Facebook page.
With thousands of tickets already sold, this is a unique opportunity for undiscovered talent to perform in front of a massive live audience, and win new fans from a crowd looking for new artists to champion the vintage cause.
