Coming Soon: MusicNL Presents the NewFound Talent Contest: 41st Annual NL Folk Festival Edition!

Stay tuned! We’ll soon be announcing this year’s Folk Festival Edition of the NewFound Talent Contest!


The NewFound Talent Contest is an opportunity for young musicians aged under 19 to gain performance experience and compete for a chance to win a prize bundle aimed at kickstarting their musical career. Participants perform before judges who give invaluable input on performance style, songwriting and technical tips.


The prizes, designed to lay a strong foundation for an up-and-comer’s music career¬†will help the grand prize-winning artist produce a demo, give them promotional tools to establish themselves, and allow them to have a consultation with an artist manager to help them set goals for their future in music. All three finalists will win gift cards which can be used towards new instruments or equipment, and two MusicNL Week 2017 Conference Delegate passes.


Keep an eye out for more details on prizes and how to apply!
