Practice hard, polish up, and come ready to have a good time, because Atlanta Fest is expecting this year to be its best talent search ever! This year, the Atlanta Fest Talent Search Presented by Word Label Group has been designed to offer artists the opportunity to let the fans decide who they want to see perform on Atlanta Fest's Talent Search Stage through an Online and Live Talent Search Competition.

Online and Live Talent Search Competition: Up to 50 artists will be selected through online voting to participate in a live competition at Atlanta Fest's Talent Search stage. The first place winner each day will have the opportunity to perform the winning song on the main stage at Atlanta Fest that same evening.

Overall Winner from Atlanta Fest Advances to National Finals: One overall winner from the Atlanta Fest Talent Search competition will advance to the national finals in September in Nashville, Tennessee. There, the Atlanta Fest winner will compete with winners from other Christian Festival Association events from around the country – performing in front of a panel of record label executives and artist-development experts. The national winner will receive an artist development deal with Word Label Group.

Live competitions will take place at Stone Mountain Park in metro Atlanta during Atlanta Fest on June 18-20, from approximately 9:30 - 11:30 am. Selected artists are expected to perform one of the songs submitted using Sonicbids.

For those who wish to compete as a band, Atlanta Fest will supply all the necessary back-line gear. Sharing back-line gear is required and makes the transition between contestants go more smoothly.

If you are chosen as a finalist to appear live at the Atlanta Fest Talent Search, an Atlanta Fest representative will notify you in May. At that time you will be required to send in a competition fee of $100 for solo artists or $150 for bands.

This could be the BIG BREAK you've been looking for!
