Live & Loud


Applications are now closed for this year’s Live and Loud Competition!


This year, the competition will be only one category:

  • Live and Loud – For performers of all ages
    A winner and runner up will be selected from each category by our panel of judges and each will receive a cash prize.

The winner of Live and Loud will get £250, while the second place gets £150, the third -place wins £100 and the audience vote gets £100.

You can support all of our performers on Sunday 24th April at the Live Final. Doors will open at 6:30pm and battle commences at 7.30pm. Tickets will be available on the door at a cost of just £5 from The Allendale Centre, Wimborne.


Live and Loud has been a part of the festival for several years now and runs with the intention of discovering and promoting local talent and providing a forum in which to showcase their work.

We continue to support our previous winners and contestants to ensure that their voices are heard and their talent is nurtured.

Last years winners included Bowen and Pounds and The Darwins. We are delighted to be welcoming them back to perform at the festival this year.
