The Listen Up Music Songwriter’s Festival aims to uncover the greatest new songwriting talent in Australia. We asked our entrants to submit a song responding to a specific theme, to help spread positive messages surrounding mental health. This year’s theme is “I am here”.
This year we travel to Brisbane for our first Queensland-based Semi Final with the top ten entries from NT, QLD and WA performing, live, in front of a panel of music industry judges. The top 3 from the night will be chosen to go forward to the Grand Final, in Sydney, in November.
