O’Neill’s Sound of Summer

Are you ready for our massive Sound of Summer competition?

A bit of live music is always good craic – and good for the soul, too. At O’Neill’s, live music is our passion and now we want to bring you the best in up and coming solo artists, duets and bands.

The regional heats are over and we’ve selected five worthy finalists to battle it out on 24th August at O’Neill’s Wardour St.

But wait, there’s more!

We’ve got room for a wildcard to join our finalists at Wardour Street.
So pop along to our facebook page and vote for Dirty Perks or Phantom Ink.

If you’ve missed any of our regional finals, check out our YouTube and see the winners in action.

It's going to be an awesome Summer of Sound!

At O’Neill’s, we are proud of our musical heritage, having played host to musical legends like the Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Fleetwood Mac over the years.

Now we want to create our own legends, selecting our favourite act to spotlight at a leading UK festival, tour some of our O’Neill’s sites and record in a studio (don’t forget the £6’000 cash prize too!)

How it Works

The regional heat winners will compete in the national final on 24th August at our flagship O’Neill’s Wardour Street - home to the Flamingo Club in the 1960s and host to the Radio 1 Sun Festival with Huw Stevens.

Our Festival Drinks Menu

Live music is always good craic, but it’s thirsty work. So we created a special festival drinks menu to quench your thirst and keep you dancing. From Jägermeister cocktails, to a refreshing Budweiser, we’ve got you covered.

Missed your chance?

The end of our Sound of Summer competition is fast approaching and if you’re cursing yourself for not entering, or gutted you didn’t make it to the finals this time round, don’t panic! We will be re-opening registration for next year at the end of August. So get practising, and we’ll see you next Summer.
