Heralding the final stage of the competition to find the best of unsigned UK musical talent, the final six will compete against each other to find the ultimate winner of Salute Music Maker’s ground-breaking competition, taking away the top prize of a no-strings attached, £50,000.
Salute Music Makers have developed a whole new way for Music Lovers to vote and become curators in their own right. The final voting stage will be split into two rounds via the innovation interactive voting system, which utilises Facebook Messenger and a specially-designed Facebook Messenger bot.
The public will still be able to access the Top 100 tracks as well as their curated playlist of up to 6 tracks they had voted for.
