Over 40 Artists Enter Beachfest Song Competition

July 7, 2014

The song submissions are in and PRS for Music and The Chewstick Foundation have revealed that Bermuda’s first ever national song competition, dubbed “The Beachfest Crown Song Competition,” has had an excellent start, with over 40 artists submitting over 70 songs in a multitude of genres.

All entrants are competing for the chance to win a $10,000 prize package courtesy of PRS for Music, the music rights management organization.

A spokesperson said, “For Stage 1, song submissions were accepted between June 6 and June 27, where The Chewstick Foundation listening committee then screened submissions to ensure they met the criteria, and now the community is invited to pick their favorites and help them get to Stage 2.

“During Stage 2, the community is encouraged to view their favorite artists’ song on YouTube in order to secure their place in the semi-finals. Stage 2 will run from Monday, July 7 until Friday, July 11. The top 10 most viewed YouTube videos will move on to the next stage.

“Each entrant and supporter is encouraged to share the video link to their favorite Song to get the views up and promote their hit song. All links are available on the newly overhauled Beachfest website, the Beachfest Bermuda YouTube Channel, as well as via the artists’ social media pages.

“Only the videos with the top ten highest view counts will make it to the semi-finals and be played on Vibe 103, with artists contending for you to text and vote for their song.

“More information on the Beachfest Emancipation Celebration and the Beachfest Crown Competition is available online. For other Chewstick Foundation initiatives visit www.chewstick.org, questions can be addressed via email to info@chewstick.org or by calling 292 2439.

“Remember to stay tuned to Vibe 103 for more details and support local artists by listening, voting and getting involved.”
