Your only destination to all things CARNIVAL
The UK Soca Monarch competition remains the only platform for soca artists to increase their brand awareness, and that places them in the spotlight during the extended period that the competition is promoted. The ultimate aim is to build a sustainable soca music industry here in the UK.
This year’s competition will see reigning Power and Groovy Monarch Triniboi Joocie defend his title. Registration is now open, and artists have until the 3 June, 2016 to submit their entries, which are again divided into the two distinct categories of ‘Power’ and ‘Groovy’. The final will take place on Sunday 7 August - affectionately dubbed ‘Soca Monarch Sunday’.
This event, produced by Soca News, will see artists battling it out to be crowned UK Soca Monarch 2016. This is an opportunity for artists to showcase their talent on a dedicated platform, so that their music may be heard and appreciated.
Developments of the competition in 2016 include artists being backed by a live band, and increased prize money. Joseph Charles, publisher of Soca News and founder and promoter of the UK Soca Monarch competition, says, “This competition is all about the artists. It’s a way for them to promote and market themselves to a growing, soca-loving audience”.
