The annual Act-Belong-Commit Breakthrough Music Competition is approaching fast and young musicians are being encouraged to sign up for the competition to get their chance to claim part of the impressive prize pool.

The Breakthrough Music Competition offers young people the chance to showcase their talents and opens up potential pathways that residents aged 12 to 24 can use to get their foot into the door of the music industry.

Entrants have the chance to win from a pool of $10,000 worth of cash and prizes, with heats to be hosted at shopping centres across the City throughout October. 

City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said the Breakthrough Music Competition offered young people the chance to share their work and gain exposure in front of larger crowds.

“Since Breakthrough began in 2012 the competition has given many musicians the ability to take their first steps into the professional music industry,” Mayor Sammels said. 

“Musicians from a variety of musical backgrounds have seized the opportunity to turn their passion into greater success and I encourage any young people who are keen to forge a career in the musical industry to participate in the competition.” 

Live performances for heats will take place at the following venues:
