Up and coming musicians invited to compete in Dreamland Introducing contest

Last year it was Battle of the Bands - this year musicians can enter Dreamland Introducing

Aspiring musicians are being offered the chance to win a year-long mentorship with industry professionals and support slots at Dreamland’s music shows.

Following the popularity of last year’s Battle of the Bands competition at the park, Dreamland Margate has announced Dreamland Introducing;  offering the opportunity to local musicians, DJs and producers to compete for the prize.

Acts selected will compete in heats throughout the Summer  on the park’s outdoor Scenic Stage to be in with a chance of being crowned the Dreamland Introducing Winner. Each week, winners will be selected by special guest judges who will be announced soon.

Dreamland Introducing takes place on Sunday afternoons (July 22 & 29 and August 12 & 19) with the final on September 2.

Anyone aged 16 – 25 can enter the competition. Access to Dreamland Introducing will be included within park entry.

Those wishing to enter Dreamland Introducing need to send a video or audio recording of their act with information on the genre and the ages of each performer to [email protected].

The deadline for submissions is July 1.

Victoria Barrow-Williams, Education and Community Officer at Dreamland Margate, said: “Dreamland Introducing is a great opportunity for musicians and performers! Here at Dreamland we are passionate about giving local creatives a platform and to support their artistic endeavours.

“Last year’s Battle of the Bands was a great success with lots of people from the local community getting involved. We are really looking forward to seeing what the acts of 2018 have in store!”
