Firestone’s Road to the Main Stage is Back


Firestone is once again giving unsigned music acts a chance to shine in front of huge new audiences. Have you got what it takes to win this years Road To The Main Stage competition and win a life changing prize to further your music career – including a top UK festival slot.

A life changing opportunity for emerging artists and musicians from all genres.

What is the competition?

Professional Music Technology are once again partnering with the iconic tyre brand to put one act on a journey quite unlike any other, with the winner not only earning the right to play on the biggest stage of their lives, but also winning a VW Transporter van for a year, store credit at a Professional Music Technology, brand new backline from Orange Amplification and a contribution towards the creation of an EP.

In the last five years, Firestone has given away more than 160 hours of studio recording time, and more recently given the 2017 and 2018 winners, Fire Fences and John Nicholas, the chance to play at the All Points East festival in London, generating priceless exposure and national media headlines.

It’s easy to enter, simply fill out the form below and submit your music to enter the competition before the deadline of Friday 11th October. Your entry will be listened to by our panel of experts and a shortlist generated for the public vote between Wednesday 30th October and Wednesday 13th November when the winner will be announced.

What can I win?

  • VW Transporter van for a year
  • Win a Gig at a UK Festival
  • Win new gear from Professional Music Technology
  • Backline from Orange Amplifiers
  • Contribution towards the creation of an EP

When is the competition happening?

Entries open on Monday 2nd September 2019 and run through to Friday 11th October 2019. Shortlisted artists will be put forward for a public vote between Wednesday 30th October 2019 and Wednesday 13th November 2019.

The winner of the public vote will be announced on Wednesday 13th November.

Firestone UK’s Brand Manager Sofie Bronserud said: “Now in its fifth year, Road to the Main Stage is a competition which offers so much more than a stand-alone trophy and a soundbite.

“Our past-winners are now making a name for themselves, shortlisted finalists have been given the confidence to know that they are talented enough to record new music and opportunities are continuing to open up as a result.

“What separates Road to the Main Stage from so many other grassroots initiatives is the money-can’t-buy opportunities afforded to the winning artists - the competition only truly begins once the triumphant act has been announced.”
