On the hunt for new local talent

Once again, Tribfest are proud to be one of the main sponsors for the Hull Daily Mail's annual Star Search competition, the biggest talent competition in East Yorkshire!

Solo artists, and bands will battle it out to be crowned Star Search & Battle of the Bands Champions, with the winners being given the opportunity to perform on the Main Stage at Tribfest 2018.

The heats are held weekly on Tuesday nights, with tonight's being hosted by The Tigers Lair, Anlaby Rd, Hull, where judges James Hoggarth (BBC), Tony Forrester, & Kelly Thomson will pick 4 acts to go through to the next round.
