Gigstarter Artist of the Year is an annual competition since 2014. On artists’ Gigstarter profile page, fans can submit their votes. The top 3 live acts with most of the votes will be invited to play a live gig during the Artist of the Year final on November 18th, 2017. This years final will be held at Ruigoord, Amsterdam.
The three artists that win the online voting competition get to perform during the final. After the three live performances, the expert jury will decide which act will become Gigstarter Artist of the Year 2017. In addition to a jury-prize, Gigstarter will be giving away a prize to the performance that wins the audience’s popular vote. Furthermore the DJ of the Year will be entertaining the crowd with its music.
Every artist who has a public profile on Gigstarter and who can perform original compositions for at least 40 minutes, can participate at the competition. Competing artist-formations can range from live solo-artists to full bands and are only allowed to play one cover song during the final.
