UK Opportunity: Merseyrail Sound Station Competition 2016

How would you like to win a year of professional music industry management and a recording session at one of the North West of England’s best studios, as well as a year’s worth of free travel on Merseyrail. That’s the prize up for grabs as the annual Merseyrail Sound Station competition returns for 2016.



What type of music are they looking for?

The competition is open to all types of musicians, including bands, duos and solo artists, based in and around the Merseyside area. Former winners of the top prize include singer Katy Alex and rapper Blue Saint.


What could I win?

The winner will receive a whole year of free Merseyrail travel, recording time at a top studio and a year of expert music management. This industry mentoring will include everything you need to advance your music career, from developing your performance skills and booking gigs, to releasing your music and making the most of your studio time.


How do I apply?

To enter the competition, simply head to one of Merseyrail’s performance locations at Liverpool Central, Liverpool South Parkway, Southport, Kirby, Wallasey Grove Road, Hoylake or Hooton and record a video of an original track. You’ll then need to upload it to the Merseyrail Sound Station Facebook page for the chance to win.

10 artists will then be chosen to perform at the Merseyrail Sound Station Festival in November, before a panel of expert judges will decide the winner. Check out the video above for more info!


Best of luck from everyone at Ditto Music!
