Isle of Wight New Blood competition in association with Hot Vox

At the Isle of Wight Festival, we’re excited to have teamed up with HOT VOX for the Isle of Wight 'New Blood’ competition. We want to find two hugely talented upcoming artists to perform at this year’s festival alongside the likes of Arcade Fire, David Guetta, Rod Stewart and Run DMC - sound like your bag? Read on! 

The Isle of Wight New Blood competition is open to all artists and bands throughout the UK and entry is as simple as submitting an original song that artists feel best represents them.

Successful entrants will have three ways of reaching the Grand Final and being in with a chance of performing at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival. Artists will be judged by music industry guests and fans in the Live Rounds, sent to the final via either the Industry Pick or 'Fans On Their Feet’ vote. Fans can also make sure their favourite artists are fast-tracked to the Grand Final by voting in the Online Public Vote.  

If you think you’ve got what it takes, register now. Who knows, maybe we’ll see you on the Island this June!
