Hilton Sydney’s Marble Bar has launched its latest social media competition to discover Sydney’s next top live music band.
‘Discovered at Marble Bar’ is a social media-driven competition where live bands and performers are encouraged to upload their demos through Marble Bar’s Facebook page in the hope of winning the coveted prize of a two-month residency at the venue.
“Marble Bar is an iconic, intimate space that has seen some of the world’s top music acts perform on its stages, and there is no other bar like it in the city,” said Hilton Sydney Hotel Manager, Felix Busch.
“The launch of ‘Discovered at Marble Bar’ is aimed at engaging with Sydney’s vibrant music community and fostering the development of the city’s dynamic music scene,” he said.
The general public will judge the contestants and by their vote the top five finalists will be selected. Voting for Discovered is simple – people can simply head to Marble Bar’s Facebook page and vote for their favourite performers online.
The top five acts, selected by the public’s vote, will be given the opportunity to battle it out live at a finale showcase to be held at Marble Bar on Wednesday March 26, 2014, in front of a team of expert judges
In addition to the panel of judges, bands will perform in front of a section of VIP industry, media and the MC of the evening.
The winner will then be selected by the public’s vote in conjunction with that of the expert judges. The victorious act will win a two month residency playing every Wednesday night at Marble Bar from April 2014 valued at $10,000.
