Depending on which market, all artists must play throughout our entire 2 or 3-round showcase festival series. Top performing artists are chosen from each round, to move on to the next round. GRANTS are given to our top selected artists in our FINALS showcase festival. There are approximately 15 artists who play in every show.
Industry professionals are at each show judging each round of events. Each artist is given hand-written feedback, and are invited to speak to the judges after their set for verbal feedback and networking. The artists whom the industry professionals choose in our finals will be given grants. Artists with grants then go through a post-show follow up to discuss and use their grants.
Landmark Events is proud to invite music industry professionals to judge our showcase festivals, to ensure that artists, are being chosen according to their professional judgement. Our industry representatives look for pure talent and quality of the artists’ performances and music based on the LME judging criteria.
