The auditions will see 12 acts progressing to the finals of the competition to be held next month during the main Intwasa Festival slated for September 24 to 29.
Intwasa would run under the theme “Cultural Diversity — The Common Heritage of Humanity”.
Raisedon Baya, the organiser of Intwasa, said the overwhelming response from the city’s young and aspiring artistes is testimony of a desire by the youths to be discovered and be taken to another level.
“That is why we came up with this show and we will continue holding it.
“The registered acts are manly in the categories of music and dance. A few entries came from young poets,” Baya said.
“With the show we aim at identifying and promoting creative talent from the city youths in the genrés of music, dance, comedy and poetry.”
Gospel group, Family Voices won the first edition in 2011 while the second edition last year was won by dance group sensation Xplosion.
