In previous years, Scouted has helped facilitate incredible opportunities for its participants. In 2019, local bands Glowing, Pinkish Blu and TOWNS went on to support the likes of Spacey Jane, RAT!hammock, G Flip, Odette, Dear Seattle and Ruby Fields after participating in Scouted. In 2021, Scouted performers The Empty Threats scored Triple J radio play for their latest EP and recently graced the stage of one of South Australia’s biggest festivals, WOMADelaide 2022.
Building on the success of previous years, Scouted has again been made possible with the support of its major sponsors the Government of South Australia and the Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR). AIR CEO, Maria Amato states:
“We are delighted to be working with Scouted to help showcase South Australia’s unsigned talent to our Indie-Con Australia industry guests.”
Scouted returns in 2022 for its fifth year to give local artists an opportunity to promote their music to some of the biggest names in the music industry.
Scouted 2022 takes place on Friday 5 August. General admission tickets are now on sale via Moshtix for $20 + bf.
