Testimonials

Listen Up was an unforgettable experience – it didn’t feel like a competition at all. You have these ten strangers bearing their heart and soul to you on stage by the stories they are telling and it’s captivating. It’s much more than a competition and it was a honour to be a part it. - Chris Pryke, UK

“Listen Up Songwriters’ Festival was the first songwriting competition I ever entered, and it was an absolutely amazing experience! Not only did I get to share my self-produced original song with an amazing group of people, I also got to talk to an incredible group of judges & mentors and establish connections. Seeing so many amazing artists with great songs was so inspiring, and made me want to write and produce more.” - Chelsea Warner, Australia
