With the electrifying October 9 event, held at Shoreditch Lighthouse in London for the twelfth edition of Tour Music Fest, come the names of UKs National Finalists that will travel to Rome for the European Final, December 7 at Auditorium del Massimo.
TMF arrived in London on October 9 with the National finals, dedicated to the United Kingdom. An intense day, with the bar set high for the performance level at the Shoreditch Lighthouse Bar & Club, all artists had the chance to perform in front of a warm audience and the official judging panel made up by Silvia Gollini, Angelina Luzi and Nikki Smash. In pure TMF style, we aimed for education this year as well, with lessons and masterclasses to convey the importance of education and learning, as a way to improve in one’s path. A day of musical sharing, where artists were able to give support and listen to each other, purifying emotions from the logic of competition.

Junior: Blessing – “Spell On You”
Singer: Ryan Upton – “Labyrinth”
