The 2017 Merseyrail Sound Station Prize opens 1st May! This year we’ve made it easier than ever to enter the competition which gives every musician a chance of winning industry mentoring, free train travel and recording time.

From now on, all you have to do is share a track with us and you are in with a chance! Just post one of your original tracks to our Facebook page and we will add you to our bank of artists. From there, we will pick artists to perform on the Sound Stage at a host of festivals including Sound City, Africa Oyé and LIMF.

Ten Sound Station artists will be picked from all the entries to perform at the Merseyrail Sound Station Festival in November in front of a panel of judges and the artist/band/DJ who impresses the most will leave with the coveted prize.

We’ll also pick tracks we like to be included in the What’s Happening Sound Station playlist and shout about them over our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook channels.

So if you have a Soundcloud track, YouTube Video, Bandcamp recording or anything else – post it to our wall now and we’ll share it with our followers. Be quick, we are picking our acts for LIMF, Hoylake Live and other festivals now!

Share your tracks on the Sound Station Facebook page now to enter the 2017 Prize.
