Singers and bands wanted for Live and Unsigned 2012 auditions!

Singers and bands are wanted as Live and Unsigned 2012 auditions start early January! With the chance to play at The O2 in London and with £100,000 in prizes, Live and Unsigned auditions are set to attract thousands of unsigned singers and bands when auditions begin in January 2012. The competition has also just announced an additional new main cash prize of £10,000 for the winning act to spend on their development.

Singers and bands to be filmed

A new addition to the competition in 2012 is that it will also be filmed for a new music series to be broadcast on Sky TV; a fly-on-the-wall music series on Live and Unsigned has given acts another reason to enter the competition! The documentary music series airing next year on Sky TV, will give an insight into what goes on behind the scenes of the Live and Unsigned competition.

Festival slots

To add to that, there is the prospect of festival slots across the UK and the world and it’s clear to see that Live and Unsigned is THE competition for aspiring bands and acts to enter in the New Year. There are festival slots in Canada, Italy, Latvia and Dublin up for grabs for the best unsigned acts in the country that make it to the Grand Final at The O2, which is incorporated into Live Fest, London’s biggest indoor festival.

Live and Unsigned Auditions 2012

Live and Unsigned is the UK’s biggest unsigned music competition for original artists and auditions are open to all genres. So whether you're into pop, RnB, punk, Indie, Alternative, rock or acoustic, the competition has it all. Each year the competition prize pool gets bigger and better as acts take to the stage and battle it out for equipment, festival slots, studio time and master classes. Other prizes up for grabs include a UK tour, a selection of Blackstar and TC Electronic amps, extensive coverage on MUZU TV and YouTube anda comprehensive consultation package with Future Music including social marketing, image, brand, access to industry contacts plus more!

All acts in the competition are auditioned live which is what makes Live and Unsigned so unique, there are no demo submissions.

Those who make it to the Grand Final will get to share the stage with some of the UK's best musicians at Live Fest at The O2 in London!Acts on the bill last year included Tinchy Styder, Zane Lowe, Roll Deep and The Hoosiers.

I don't get why there's so much hate for BotB contests. It's a great idea. You pay money to enter the gig and if you can bring enough fans (friends) then you recoup the money. If nobody likes you then you make a loss. The clever bit is the BAND gets fucked if the gig is a flop and the promoter is always making a profit.

The clever extension to the premise is that if you bring enough fans to your gig, you get to play to a lot of people! It's such a clever trick! If only ALL gigs functioned this way!
