Who are they looking for?

Tracks4Change are looking for unsigned artists aged between 16 and 22 with an original song about the issues that matter to them. Your song must not be longer than 5 minutes, but any genre of music will be accepted, from pop, jazz and rap, to spoken word, electronic and acoustic.

 

How do I enter?

Entries will close on 20th May and a shortlist of 10 chosen artists will be named on 1st June. The winner will be decided by public vote and announced on the 10th June 2016, before going on to perform on the Main Stage at Bestival, which takes place on the Isle of Wight from 8th to the 11th September 2016.

 

Who decides the winner?

An expert panel of star judges will whittle down the entries before they are put to the public vote.
