Regardless of the genre of music you make, Converse wants to hear your sound.

Judging will take place between the 17th and 19th of June. Returning judge and 5FM DJ, Catherine Grenfell will be joined this year by hip-hop legend, HHP. Owner of Openroom Productions, Darryl Torr, will also enter the mix, as one of SA’s most acclaimed producers.
