Live and Unsigned is the UK’s biggest original music competition for bands, vocal groups and solo artists. Travelling across the nation, the competition searches for the ultimate and best UK unsigned act... and guess who has teamed up with them.... YES, OSFEST!
All acts are auditioned live in front of a judging panel, which is what makes Live and Unsigned so unique; there are no demos or recordings! All genres are encouraged to enter the competition so whether you’re into pop, RnB, punk, rock or acoustic, the competition has it all.
Those who make it through the audition stage will get to perform to industry judges (Including the Osfest Management), A&R associates and celebrity guests in some of the UK’s most prestigious venues.
Those who make it to the Grand Final will get to share the stage with some of the UK’s best musicians at the Live and Unsigned Festival at the 02 in London!
Over 10, 000 acts entered the competition last year and the Grand Final saw the cream of the UK’s unsigned talent showcase their music in front of thousands of audience members and the judging panel which included Slade’s legendary front man Noddy Holder, Radio 1’s Annie Nightingale, Kerrang’s Alex Baker and RnB star Shola Ama.
The competition’s aim is to find potential recording artists and help develop up and coming acts across the UK.
Osfest is proudly offering festival support slots to the winners from the Midland and North-West Area Finals... and we can’t wait to find out who they are!
