O’Neill’s Sound of Summer

Are you ready for the return of our epic Sound of Summer competition?

Six up and coming bands with undiscovered talent have beaten off stiff competition throughout the area and made it through to the National Final at O’Neill’s Wardour Street London on 23rd August, 7pm, as part of the national Sound of Summer competition.

The acts are:

Johnny Bee



Dominic Hook

Black Market

Tara Livingstone


The bands impressed guests and judges in the heats at their local O’Neill’s venues across the region and have made it through to the regional finals.

They could now follow in the footsteps of a number of other superstars who have performed at various O’Neill’s venues throughout the UK and you could be there to see this brand new talent emerge.

Huge names such as the Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and Rod Stewart have performed at its famous Wardour Street venue, which was awarded a Blue Plaque for its music history. It was also the backdrop to David Bowie’s MTV video ‘Blue Jeans’, as well as the recording location of Georgie Fame’s the Night train.

The Local Manager of O’Neill’s Wardour Street said: “At O’Neill’s we love to help give bands their big break on the live circuit. This years’ competition has been to such a high standard that we expect a great night on 23rd August, 7pm, and hope to see lots of support for these talented acts.

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