At the Mt Eliza Music Festival our mission is to promote and support new emerging Australian talent by searching for the best acts we can find to perform at our annual event. Big names and massive social media followings are not the criteria for us when selecting artists and instead, passion, creativity, innovation and talent are the pre-requisites that get our attention.


As part of this vision we have introduced the RISING STAR search which aims to unearth and shine the performance spotlight on the best musical talent we can find to join our headline acts on main stage. The RISING STAR will also receive an artist marketing package from Cobraskin valued at over $5,000 which includes a professional music website, video promotional production, a photographic portfolio and social media management.

The RISING STAR search is open to all musical performers and to nominate someone, or yourself just follow the instructions below:

  1. Nominate an artist – Head over to our 2017 event page here and share a link to your artist Facebook page or the page of the artist you would like to nominate.
  2. Artist application – Nominated artists need to post a 1 minute video of them performing on Instagram with the hashtag #mtelizafest2017

We will be accepting applications until the end of 2017 and announce the RISNG STAR artist on the Tuesday 10th January 2017
