THE VOICE 2016

Pre-auditions for The Voice 2016 will begin this summer where those who impress the producers at the open try-outs will be invited to take part in the Blind Auditions, where they’ll have the chance to perform for the four superstar coaches.

Solo acts or duos who are 16 years of age or over by 17th June 2015 can now submit their entry registration for The Voice 2016 on their website. Applicants will then be invited to perform for the show’s team at one of the open audition dates.

Successful acts will then be asked to attend a call back in August before the Blind Auditions begin filming at the end of this year.

THE VOICE VS OPEN MIC UK

An alternative to The Voice 2016 is the national music competition Open Mic UK which has auditions across the UK this summer too.

Open Mic UK is open to all ages and music genres and attracts over 9,000 acts every year as it travels across the country in search for the UK’s best singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocal groups.

Unlike The Voice 2016, Open Mic UK gives unsigned artists the chance to perform live on stage in front of a range of different music and entertainment industry judges which include; A&R representatives from the major record labels, BBC Introducing, music managers and producers as well as national radios and press.

The industry judges will be searching for an act that has the potential to be successfully launched as a major recording artist today. The judges also provide industry feedback to each act to help them further develop their performances and musical careers.

Throughout the Open Mic UK competition there are also thousands of pounds worth of prizes given away, such as free recording studio time and free singing lessons. The overall Open Mic UK winner will also win a £5000 advance towards their music career!
