Home / Song Competition

The “Night and Day Song Competition”, aims to support up and coming artists by providing the
resources needed to increase their exposure and to get their music heard. As well as having the
opportunity to play at the festival, the winner will also be provided with a choice of two studios at
which to spend a day recording.

This year we will run a second song contest solely for artists still in school. The winning song will get
the second choice of our two studios at which to spend a day recording.


Winner (Main Competition)
– One days recording at a professional studio
– Play at the Night and Day Festival 2024

Winner (School Aged Competition)
– One days recording at a professional studio


Entries will be screened by a listening committee.
