TuneUp – A Music Competition

This is an exciting opportunity to win a cash prize or a chance to record a five track CD at a professional recording studio.

There are two categories for entry:

(Sound Station Recording Studio, Galashiels)

The music can be of any genre.

There will be semi-finals for selected applicants in each category on Saturday 5th August in Innrleithen.

The three top entries at each heat will then go to a play-off finale on Sunday 20th August 2017. There will be a panel of judges for each prelim heat and the final.

Each entrant, solo or band, will be asked to submit an electronic entry no later than midnight on 30th June 2017. This will consist of one cover and one self-penned song or tune. The six top submissions from each age category will then be invited to take part in the prelim heats.
