Originally intended to open on April 3rd, the new and revolutionary talent platform, Salute, has had to push back the date for contestants to enter on accounts of the project waiting on some very exciting news.
After announcing the competition and its ethos at new London venue, Omeara, in late March, Salute were building up to the launch date, when potential ‘Music Makers’ could begin to upload their music to the platform. After this stage, all music would be evaluated and vetted, with the goal of narrowing down all applicants to a top 100.
However, this initial phase of the competition has had to be postponed as the team behind Salute are waiting to hear on some potentially game-changing additions to the project that could take it to a whole new level.
Speculation suggests that the news could relate to confirmation on an innovative partnership with one of world’s biggest and pioneering organisations, but those following the progression of this exciting new talent platform will have to wait and see.
The new date for access to all entrants will be 27th April.
What is Salute?
Salute Music Makers is a pioneering enterprise redefining the face of the music industry. The idea behind the project is to create an accessible and fair opportunity for a diverse range of music makers to showcase their talents, tapping into the DIY generation of music. Initially, hopeful applicants will upload their music to an app where it will be vetted by industry professionals, before narrowing it down to a top 100. After this stage, a public vote will pick out a top 6 who will fight it out for a £50,000 prize on the Salute live TV shows. Aiming to empower original, grass-roots music makers and distance themselves from the conventional talent shows such as The X-Factor and The Voice, Salute is leading the search for talent in a new direction.
