Details and conditions
Songwriters must come from Hastings.
Only one entry per person/group.
You must complete our online application form, submit and upload your song. It is not possible to send in just your lyrics/written music. If you don’t feel confident to sing/play your work, you can find someone else to do it for you.
The judges are judging your song and not your recording quality, performance, vocals and production. They are experienced and can hear the difference between a good song and good production. However, it is possible the popular vote will be influenced by your recording quality.
Everyone who sends in an entry will receive a certificate of entry.
Judges may make commendations and feedback depending on the number of entrants.
There are 3 x Judge’s Winners and 1 x Popular Vote winner. All winners can have their songs professionally recorded by YiaYia’s recording studio in Bohemia Road. We will do our best to make sure a suitable day is found for everyone to attend, when conditions allow.
Your song needs to be unique to Beat Lockdown and not promoted elsewhere.
