Open Mic is the biggest nation-wide search for unsigned talent. From singer-songwriters and solo performers, to rap artists and vocal groups – over 10,000 performers take to the stage every year for this prestigious competition, offering prizes, exposure and benefits to every artist that comes along for the ride. Entry is open to everyone no matter the artist, no matter the genre and no matter the experience. The competition runs across the UK with live shows and events up and down the country culminating in a massive Grand Final at the amazing Alexandra Palace Theatre in London.
This is more than just a music competition. Not only does every artist get the chance to perform and gain valuable feedback from industry professionals, but they also get the chance to compete for over £70,000 worth of prizes.
The competition runs from August 2021 to July 2022 and is a mixture of on-demand audition performances, online shows and live events in some of the most amazing venues in the country. No matter where you are in the UK, you wont have to travel far to find your next stage to perform on.
Making it through to the next stage will put contestants head to head with local acts in online and physical shows throughout the UK as they perform directly for our judges and audience in an attempt to get them ever closer to the Grand Final.
