The competition aims to give a platform to the very best of emerging artists. Open to both bands and solo artists, Green Man Rising looks for the headliners of the future. To enter, acts provide a photograph, a short biography and a link to their music on any platform they choose.
A panel of prestigious music tastemakers will listen to the acts, picking twenty for the semi-final. Each will then rank their 6 favourites from the shortlist, and the six most popular overall will be invited to play in the final at the Camden Assembly in London on 5th July 2017.
At the final, more influential industry figures are sure to be present. In the past, the final has been attended by representatives from Domino Records, Moshi Moshi, Beggars, Bella Union, Mojo Magazine, and of course, Green Man.
The winner of the overall competition will get the chance to impress the Green Man crowds, opening their Mountain Stage on 18th August 2017. The other finalists will appear on the Green Man Rising stage throughout the weekend.
The closing date for entries is 31st May 2017.
