New Music Competition

Presented by

The New Music Competition is a celebrated part of St Kilda Festival since 2007, and has hosted acts that have become some of the country’s most notable artists including Baker Boy, Missy Higgins, Client Liaison, Bad Bangs and more. For the very first time, in 2022 the New Music Competition will be presented online.

From hundreds of entries from around Victoria, six successful finalists were invited to perform live at St Kilda venue MEMO Music Hall prior to the Festival and have their performance filmed. A showcase of their performance will be available for viewing on our website from 5 – 20 February, 2022.
