2021 Competition

The City's Breakthrough Music Competition is an annual competition for young people aged 12-24. It provides young people the opportunity to showcase their talents, and is a potential pathway for those wanting to develop a career in the music industry.

Congratulations to all the young people who competed in this year's competition.

There were so many amazing, talented contestants from Rockingham and the greater metropolitan area that the judges struggled to choose winners from each category of the competition. This year our judging line-up included Jordan Anthony and Nikki D’Agostino with special guest judge Kav Temperley from Eskimo Joe joining us for the final event.
