Sound of Summer is back and this year it’s bigger and better than ever!

Are you an up-and-coming artist or part of a band? O’Neill’s needs you!

As part of O’Neill’s Sound of Summer – in association with Jack Daniels and DIY – we're searching for the brightest new act to perform alongside one of the UK's biggest bands playing at this year’s Jack Daniel's Presents festival.

Click on the link below to register your band for Sound of Summer. The application process closes on 12th July 2019. If your application is successful, you will be battling it out with other artists across the country in the local heats held at your local O’Neill’s on 1st August. Local heat winners will then perform on 15th or 22nd August for six coveted Regional Winner titles and £1,000 cash prize.

These Regional winners will then be reviewed by a panel of expert judges where a National Winner will be crowned and get the chance to perform alongside one of the UK’s biggest acts at Jack Daniel’s Presents in Birmingham. Not only does the prize include the coveted opening slot at this year's Jack Daniel's Presents, but the National winner will also be taken on a three-day UK mini tour ahead of the gig, courtesy of Jack Daniels.
