Emerging Ibiza announced an innovative new artist discovery contest and festival designed to boost upcoming underground talent.
Essential Ibiza shared details on the program Feb. 28, in which chosen artists will be mentored by a panel of experts including Yousef, Steve Lawler, and Pete Tong. Those selected will also have their music showcased online and will be given a chance to play live on the island as the concept culminates with the Emerging Ibiza Break-Thru Festival, made up of nine events held across five days from May 27 to 31. Artists who prove popular during the contest will also be rewarded with residencies across the island for the rest of the summer.
Festival passes are available soon, with various accommodation packages already on sale. In the meantime, Emerging Ibiza is adding some exclusive sets to their SoundCloud page, with many more on the way.
