As well as the winner opening the mainstage on Sunday June 23, all of the finalists will have the opportunity to play on the Platform One Stage over the weekend.

The general public are encouraged to come and support the finalists, with doors at 6:30pm and the first act on at 7pm. Tickets can be bought in advance online.
