Heat Two of BurySOUND takes place tomorrow night at The Hunter Club in Bury St Edmunds. As it is Valentine’s Night we highly recommend a romantic evening for two in the mosh pit…
BurySOUND has been running since 1998 and is one of East Anglia’s best known and longest running band competitions. It’s aims are simple: to discover, nurture and promote upcoming musical talent.
The competition is open to young bands and artists based in and around the West Suffolk area. All genres are welcome. There is no upper age limit, but priority is given to younger entrants.
Up to twenty acts will perform over five heats at The Hunter Club in Bury St Edmunds and at Haverhill Arts Centre during February and March 2020. One winner will be chosen from each heat by our judging panel. The Grand Final will be held at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds on Friday 20th March 2020.
The judging panel comprises musicians, promoters, DJs, journalists, producers and other industry professionals who adore live music, and who make a positive contribution to the local scene. Bands are judged on musical ability, entertainment factor, stage presence, lyrical content, originality, professionalism and band togetherness, but more importantly, on the intangible, indefinable awesomeness, passion and raw talent that future biopics are made of.
The competition element, however, is secondary to the thrill of discovering other like-minded artists, and playing in front of a music-loving crowd.
