Rising Rebels 2019

Friday 14th December 2018

Merthyr Rising Festival and Musicians Against Homelessness are looking for an emerging act (band or artist) who embodies the spirit of rebellion, to support Black Grape on Friday, May 24th 2019 at Merthyr Rising Festival.

We’re searching the UK high and low for unsigned acts that not only sound great but who have something to say: this could be speaking truth to power, social commentary or simply trying to make people think about the world in which they live.

Bands / artists will enter regional contests taking place in venues around the country, the winner of each contest will then be chosen as the support act for Black Grape by the general public through an online poll.
The winning act will:
  • Support Black Grape at Merthyr Rising Festival with weekend travel and accommodation
  • Receive £500 cash 
  • Receive Merthyr Rising Merchandise (for each artist)
