As the Bluesfest Busking Comp hits its 15th year, we see a new era of Bluesfest Busking emerge as we implement major changes set to up the stakes of the competition for 2018. There will be 10 Busking Comp artists given the chance to play what could quite possibly be the most important gig of their life on the Bluesfest Delta stage. Playing in front of an international audience of punters and music industry alike looking for that new sound that has the potential to go the whole nine yards – and this could be you!
In the Over 18 leg of the comp all SIX finalists will be provided the opportunity to play on the Delta Stage at the 2018 Bluesfest with the winner playing twice. And, for the first time ever the Grommet winner is to take to a main stage also obtaining a slot at the Delta Stage at the 2018 Bluesfest. These are truly sensational prizes up for grabs with these artists experiencing first-hand what it’s like to be selected to play at the world renowned festival that is Bluesfest in true Rock Star style.
Further to this, 2018 will see the Busking Stage coming to an end but one can’t go past these first class opportunities to gain entrance into such a major international festival. We will continue to see Roving Buskers bringing that rustic Festival Charm to the Bluesfest 2018 with a swagger of entrants being selected to uphold this ritual.
Join the following that is the Bluesfest Busking Comp for 2018 kicking off with the Grommet Heats taking on a one day event at the Byron YAC on the 24th March 2018, followed by the Open Semi-Finals at BYRON BAY BREWERY on the 27th and 28th March 2018 and the BIG DAY that is the Finals on the 30th March 2018 at The BEACH HOTEL.
