This Feeling By The Sea launch competition for new artist to open the festival
Rock 'n' roll tastemakers This Feeling, known for their role in propelling UK music acts to success, are on a mission to uncover the next big thing. This Feeling Records, renowned for supporting talents like Blossoms, Catfish and The Bottlemen, and Gerry Cinnamon, is launching a competition to find two artists to open their biggest festival yet, This Feeling By The Sea. Taking place on August 18th and 19th at Bridlington Spa, the festival has expanded its lineup to include legendary Soccer AM host Fenners as the compere, with DJ sets by Jericho Keys (BBC Radio) and John Kennedy (Radio X).
The competition will be judged by This Feeling, Bridlington Spa, Jericho Keys, and John Kennedy, who will select one artist from Yorkshire to kick-start Friday's festivities alongside headliners Red Rum Club and The K's. They will also choose another artist from anywhere in the UK to open Saturday's lineup, featuring chart-topping favorites The Lathums and Lottery Winners. This opportunity allows rising stars to showcase their talent in front of a large crowd alongside established artists at the breathtaking Art Deco Royal Hall, which can accommodate up to 3800 people.
Artists eager to seize this chance can enter the competition by submitting their application before Sunday, July 23rd. The winners will be announced on July 29th, adding to the excitement surrounding the event.
