Wembley Park Live talent call

Our search for the best local talent is back!

Are you a musician, living in Brent or the surrounding boroughs, or perhaps live elsewhere but have a close connection to Wembley? Want to play at Wembley Park? Then we want to hear from you! 

Working in partnership with Busk in London, Wembley Park is expanding its talent pool of local musicians to be part of the new 2022 Wembley Park Live performance season starting in May.

If selected to join the talent roster, you will have the opportunity to be part of exclusive performance opportunities and paid gigs, including International Busking Day. Wembley Park Live gigs are stripped right back with a grassroots vibe, no big stage or fancy equipment – just you and your music.

Wembley Park Live Academy

To be part of the Wembley Park Live, you need to be 14 years and up, with an easy-listening musical style suited to a wide audience, from classical to country, folk to pop and plenty in between.

If selected to join the talent roster, you will have the opportunity to be part of exclusive performance opportunities and paid gigs.  Wembley Park Live gigs are stripped right back with a grassroots vibe, no big stage or fancy equipment – just you and your music.

Ideally, you will live in the London Boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Barnet or Camden.  Don’t live in one of these boroughs?  No problem, tell us what your connection to Brent is and we will take that on board! Everyone is welcome to apply, but in this first round of applications, we will be prioritising performers based in Brent and neighbouring boroughs.

All acts need to make sure they're completely portable, your equipment must be battery powered and you are happy to perform in a stripped-back, lo-fi fashion.  Don’t worry if you are not kitted out with battery-powered equipment. If selected, we will help you get all geared up!
