Whether you’re a budding solo artist, duet or an exciting new band, be part of our Sound of Summer competition to win £5,000 cash prize, studio recording time, a slot at a leading UK festival, and a UK tour of O'Neill's!

All you need to do is register your act below and tell us why you deserve a place at Sound of Summer. All members of your act must be over 18 years old and you must perform original music.

If your application is successful, you will be battling it out with other artists in the local heats between 6th May to the 9th June. Local heat winners will then take each other on in the semi-finals. The final acts standing will compete in the national final at our flagship O’Neill’s Wardour Street at the end of August. Only one can be crowned the winner and get their turn in the spotlight at a leading UK festival.


We’ve decided to extend registration until 31st May due to such high demand! *Please note that some pubs may have already hosted their local heats before the registration closing date so make sure to get your entries in as soon as possible before the local heats begin on 6th May.

Good luck!

* Please upload at least one photograph of your band.
