Win big with Firestone’s Road to the Main Stage competition!

Monday September 9, 2019

Firestone’s Road to the Main Stage (RTTMS) competition is back for another year to give young, unsigned artists a chance to have their music heard.

Road to the Main Stage is an annual competition held by iconic tyre brand Firestone in which young, unsigned musicians have a chance to perform in front of huge audiences, including at top UK festivals. There are a great collection of prizes on offer alongside this performance opportunity, which are listed below.

Firestone UK’s Brand Manager Sofie Bronserud said: “Now in its fifth year, Road to the Main Stage is a competition which offers so much more than a stand-alone trophy and a soundbite.

“Our past-winners are now making a name for themselves, shortlisted finalists have been given the confidence to know that they are talented enough to record new music and opportunities are continuing to open up as a result.”
