Scouted exists to put local artists on a larger platform, amplify their voices and provide them with new and exciting opportunities! Music SA, GM, Kim Roberts is passionate about the tangible results that we hope to see, and have seen in the past, for local artists as a result of Scouted;
“Each year, our Scouted event delivers genuine business outcomes for South Australian musicians. In the past this has included signings by publishers, artist managers and bookers, as well as programming at major festivals, being added to radio rotation and being selected to support national touring artists,”
While Scouted 2020 couldn’t go ahead in its usual format due to COVID, Scouted 2019 helped to facilitate some impressive results for the artists that performed!
