Please note that the open mic is not being held in 2021
A chance to showcase your talent
Over the years our Open Mic competition has increased in popularity and a chance to make a festival concert appearance in Sabrina Marquee is a real opportunity for budding artists.
All of our MCs have been specially picked, so if you need any help or advice please don’t hesitate to ask. There’s a PA and an experienced sound engineer, so what are you waiting for?
The competition is open to festivalgoers of all ages but is not open to festival artists. To be eligible to take part you will need tickets covering Saturday and Sunday. Each performance spot lasts for 15 minutes. Signing up is at the venue from 10:00-11:00 on Saturday and Sunday. You are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
Open Mic – The Hub (downstairs)
Saturday 12:15-14:15 and 17:00-19:00 | Sunday 12:15-14:15 and 14:30-16:30
One act will be picked from each of the above sessions to go forward into the final on Sunday.
Sunday Final – the four chosen acts return to perform in front of a panel of judges (and an audience) between 16:45-17:45. 17:45-18:00 judges make decision and announce winner.
The winner must be available for a sound check in Sabrina Marquee at 18.45 followed by a performance at 19.30-20.15.
