Enter the 2017 Open Stage

Entry to this year’s Open Stage competition is now open, until April 30th.

The Open Stage is a friendly competition, open to all – soloists, bands, musicians and singers (in any combination) – taking place on Saturday 27 May. This year we’ve moved the event slightly later in the day, to 3pm, and into the more intimate surrounds of the Stromness Hotel (the Festival Club room).

To keep the event running to time, though, we unfortunately cannot guarantee a place for all who apply. Entrants will hear back from us no later than May 10th.

More information, or enter here.

Good luck!
