The Big Music Project has launched in the UK and is backed by a Big Lottery Fund grant of £4m to discover and invest in new music talent in the UK. It is a new initiative from the BPI, The BRITs, Capital FM, Classic FM and youth work charity UK Youth. The competition itself is split into two age groups (14-18 and 19-24) and entrants upload their music to the dedicated Big Music Project website for a public vote. From this, artists will be shortlisted to play at a series of regional heats in 13 cities in the UK, culminating in a final in February next year (in the run up to the BRITs 2015). The winners will get to record at Abbey Road and play at the Albert Hall as part of Classic FM Live. The Big Music Site also features advice on getting into the music business along with interviews with artists and others working in the industry.
