AFROPUNK Joburg is looking for two undiscovered acts to make their major debut at this world renowned festival in December. 

To stand a chance, South African talents need to submit their music right now! 
Bands are to submit their original songs to the contest via AFROPUNK’s online portal http://afropunkfest.com/johannesburg/battle-of-the-bands/. From there, fans vote to narrow hundreds of hopefuls down to 8 finalists who will vie for the two spots to play at AFROPUNK Joburg 2018.
 
Each of the 8 finalists gets their chance to perform in front of AFROPUNK fans at the Battle of the Bands live competitions . A panel of expert judges selects the champion based on technical skill as well as their ability to thrill the crowd.
 
In partnership with AFRICORI, Africa’s leading digital music company, AFROPUNK is excited to integrate artist development  resources into the program for the first time ever! Two intensive days of workshops will cover everything a new artist needs to think about – from styling and stage presence, to publishing and the business of music. Finalists will have hands-on mentorship opportunities with industry experts.
 
AFROPUNK Joburg returns to Constitution Hill on the 30th and 31st of December.
