We are now accepting submissions for the Wedge unsigned showcase 2017. Previous winners and finalists have gone on to tour throughout the UK and Europe, support chart-topping artists, as well as perform at major festivals that include T in the Park and Glastonbury.
Each year we receive hundreds of applications from across the South. After listening to every submission we will contact the best artists and organise them into heats. Each heat will be split into genres so fear not acoustic artists, you won't have to worry about playing on the same bill as 4 death metal bands!
The heats will take place in the Edge, with the finals taking place in The Wedgewood Rooms. Only the artists with the highest audience and judges vote will progress to the finals, so it's crucial you rally your fans for each show, but that you also make sure you’re as tight as possible for your set!
We are currently working on putting together an amazing roster of industry judges for the showcase. Previous judges have worked in all areas of the Music Industry, from major record labels, management companies, tour managers, touring engineers as well as artists and session musicians. Locally we also have a great selection of judges from promoters as well as radio presenters, bloggers and journalists.
The winners of the showcase will at least win studio time, rehearsal time, a slot at Icebreaker Festival.
The Wedge showcase is a chance to get your music heard by industry professionals, perform on one of UK's most iconic stages, as well as get your hands on some quality prizes that can boost your artistic career!
