Unearthed High Competition Now Open! - MusicNSW

Unearthed High is back and searching for Australia’s “best high school music act”. If you’re in a band, a songwriter, producer or MC – Unearthed High want to hear from you. Past winners include SnakadaktalStonefield and Hunting Grounds, all of which have gone on to have successful careers! Keep reading for details on how to enter.


To enter, upload an original track to triplejunearthed.com and tell them which high school you attend. To be eligible at least half of the band members need to be in high school. Entries close at midnight on Mon 21 July so there’s plenty of time to get started.


Need some help getting started? There are heaps of tips and ideas on song writing, rehearsing, recording, playing gigs, and promoting yourself. Plus advice from The Doctor, Seth Sentry, last year’s winners Lunatics on Pogosticks and stacks of other artists going up over the next few weeks.


The winning act will be flown to triple j’s studio to have their song professionally recorded by triple j’s Music Producers. The song will then be played on triple j and triple j Unearthed. Plus they’ll put on a concert at their high school, where the winning band will play alongside hip hop guru Seth Sentry, in front of all their school mates!

triple j Unearthed High finalists will be announced on Tues 5 August, with the 2014 Unearthed High winner revealed on Fri 15 August.
