Are you an aspiring artist or band? Have you been hustling in the game but haven’t had your chance to shine? Unlock your special ingredient with Hansa Pilsener. From the 17th of November 2011 you can upload your demo and stand a chance to add your special ingredient to the line-up at the Hansa Festival of Legends. 6 talented entries will perform as opening acts for Usher at the Festival of Legends in March 2012.
Hansa Pilsener has just announced the launch of a nationwide talent search that will culminate in the Festival of Legends Tour, headlined by US R&B sensation Usher. The brand is seeking talent from all over the country; performers that possess that ‘special ingredient’ that makes them stand out from the crowd.
“The scouting session is looking to unearth undiscovered musical talent among South Africans aged between 18 and 34 in the genres of Hip Hop, Kwaito, House and Afro pop,” said Hansa’s General Manager, Mosidi Seretlo.
A host of talent scouts have been organised to search for talent across the country. In addition, performers can enter the search online from the 17th November by uploading their music on the Hansa website (www.hansapilsener.co.za).
This competition is open to all performers who are currently pursuing their dreams of musical success and still waiting for their big break. Hansa Pilsener aims to showcase their talent and provide them with a platform to learn from the best in the industry in order to grow that talent. Not only will finalists enjoy the opportunity to spend time with Usher as he advises them and shares the ‘special ingredient’ that has led to his own phenomenal success, the winners will get to perform on the same stage as the superstar in three performances set to take place in March 2012.
The competition takes place from 17th November 2011 to 15th February 2012.
Online entries for performers close on 30 November and Hansa Pilsener will begin the process of showcasing the talent around the country from mid-December 2011 to mid- January 2012. Semi-finals will take place over the last two weeks of January and online voting will take place from 1st-15thFebruary 2012.
The top performers will be showcased at 30 tavern activations that have been planned to take place countrywide. Here, Hansa consumers will be able to vote for their favourite artists, who will then go forward into a final judging session.
The talent search will culminate in three shows, headlined by Usher, taking place in March 2012 in Gauteng, Cape Town and KwaZulu-Natal. Ultimately, six finalists will have the opportunity to open for Usher (three at the Gauteng performance, one in Durban and two in the Cape).
