Finalists announced for Songwriters @ The Rocks competition

Sydney songwriting competition @ The Rocks has shared a list of successful finalists ahead of this weekend’s finale event.

Over the span of Friday 18 – Saturday 19 June, 17 finalists will perform in 40 small-scale events across The Rocks precinct, with the Songwriters @ The Rocks Finale outdoor live concert following afterwards on Sunday, June 20.

The Finale will see the competition’s top four finalists, as determined through the previous showcase performances, perform two songs each alongside a number of successful Australian acts, including Grinspoon’s Phil Jamieson, Boo Seeka and Tia Gostelow.

Each act will then be judged by a team of four industry professionals to decide on an overall winner for the competition, with over $15,000 worth of prizes from The Grove Studios, White Sky Accounting, Afends, Nandos and Sound Merch on offer.

Alternative rock act Gully Days will also perform two unplugged sets throughout the day today.
