The Hunt for South Africa’s Best Unsigned Talent Continues in July

So last year CONVERSE offered an unsigned band the chance to play at THE 100 Club in London, remember I spoke about that  here?

Converse is once again on the hunt for unsigned talent to Get Out Of  The Garage and be transported to the UK to play this epic venue later this year. Then the winner will also shoot off to New York to record at the Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn.

No matter if you’re a punk rocker, electro fundi, kickass proponent of kwaito, or a hip hop playa, Converse wants to hear your sound!!

Entries are open from the 9th of July, today,  till August 8th 2013,  visit and upload a Soundcloud version of your best track. On the 15th of August, judges Catherine Grenfell, Jon Savage, and Reason will have narrowed down the entries to SA’s Top 10 unsigned artists. Converse will then showcase these acts on Facebook, where South African music fans can vote for their favourite. Simply by voting, fans have a chance to join their favourite band VIP style to London for the gig.

Last year, the incredibly talented Matthew Mole was selected as the winner of the Get Out The Garage 2012 campaign! Check out a little video of his journey below:


The overall winner will be announced on the 16th of September 2013, and soon after take the stage at Rocking the Daisies 2013 festival. 

SO what are you waiting for, go here -> Converse Facebook App. Add your music, and you could be heading off too London to play at The 100 Club! Follow the conversation on Twitter @Converse_Africa and with the #Play100Club hashtag.
