After huge success in New York and LA, The Coffee Music Project will return to London for the 5th year this FEBRUARY. Applications are now open and will close on January 13th, 2019. Music artists who believe they can write and perform a winning song about LONDON can apply here
The Coffee Music Project is the world’s most exciting and influential music competition, showcasing the creativity and talents of emerging musicians whilst raising money for coffee growing communities all over the world.
The Coffee Music Project celebrates diverse, authentic musical talent, providing a platform for self- made artists who believe they have what it takes to write and perform a winning song to a specified theme; LONDON. Unlike reality TV talent competitions, the judging panel is made up of a broad spectrum of music industry leaders from top song writers to sync agents with prizes designed to help you kick start your career. 100% of the profits from the live shows will go directly to charity Project Waterfall; providing clean water and sanitation to coffee growing communities. Apply by January 13th and make your music count!
“This year’s Coffee Music Project in London is set to be the best ever. Following on from the previous successes in London, New York and LA, the entire program is gaining a lot of industry momentum. This provides an incredible platform for immensely talented, unsigned music artists to gain the high-profile exposure they need to launch their careers – and all for a great cause.” – Jeffrey Young, Founder of The Coffee Music Project
Musicians at all levels can now apply online by submitting two YouTube video performances. The top 36 contestants will be selected to perform at the preliminary qualifying rounds, which will take place 25/26th Feb and 4th/5th March at Soho Residence.
