We started The Showcase Tour in 2016 with the desire to give every artist a platform to showcase their music...to a live audience...in any city. Our first tour had only 5 shows on the schedule. Today, we host over 150 shows per year in 4 different countries, to find the best-untapped talent.
Judges at each Showcase score every performance and choose the top 3 performers to win our prizes. All 1st place winners, from July 2018-June 2019, will be invited to perform at our Finale and compete for the Grand Prize!
The Finale is on Labor Day Weekend in Los Angeles. One lucky & very talented artist will walk away with $50,000 in their bank account and a U.S. tour on their schedule.
So, if you’re passionate about your music or want to win the Grand Prize, you should apply to perform now.
