Open Mic Competitions

Aylesbury Town Council News Feed - Mon, 01/15/2018 - 08:05

Would you like to perform at Live in the Park, 2018??  Are you a talented performer needing a break to hit the local music scene, or are you established and just love playing to a huge audience?  Then this could be the competition for you.

Open Mic Competitions are being held at Shoot Aylesbury, to find acts to perform on the main and second stages on Saturday 25 August at Live in the Park.  We are actively welcoming all genres, music styles and ages – you just need to be able to provide 30mins of material (either original, covers or a combination) that will be suitable for this large outdoor music festival.  So weather you play traditional folk songs, sing R’n’B, create dance music, write your own raps or anything and everything in between, we’d love to hear from you.

Last year over 11,500 people came to the event – so it really is a fantastic opportunity, to get your name on the local music scene.

Competition is open to all local performers, who haven’t performed at the event since 2013 and live within a 20miles radius of the town.  There will be 2 separate Open Mic competitions to find a band to perform on the main stage (Thur 15 March) and an acoustic act for the second stage (Thur 22 March).

Full terms and conditions, along with the application form are available below – please click on the click to open and print then print the document

Registration Form and T&C’s

For pictures and videos from Live in the Park 2017, and earlier, please do check out the albums on our main Facebook page.

For more information or to ask any questions please email the events team.
