Registration is now open for those wanting to take part in Palma’s Pop Rock Contest, which seeks to provide opportunities for undiscovered artists on the island.

The Palma councillor for Culture and Social Welfare, Antoni Noguera, and the general coordinator of Culture, Miquel Àngel Contreras, have presented this year’s Pop Rock Contest, which is now in its third edition after the Department of Culture decided to bring it back in 2020.

Registration is open until July 15 and participants must be over 18 years of age. The aim of the Pop Rock Contest is to discover new talent and showcase what the Mallorca music scene has to offer.

The Pop Rock Contest reached an all-time record for participation last year, with 157 musical acts. “When we decided to bring back Pop Rock, we didn’t think we would get this far,” said Antoni Noguera. “The most important thing is to give the musicians an opportunity, and we are very happy to do so”, he added.

The pre-selection will take place from July 16 to August 21, the semi-finals will be held on September 9 and 10 and the final will be on September 24. For more information, visit www.palmacultura.cat.
