In the second time that they have hosted the event, Platform 22 will take place on Saturday, September 9, at The Black Swan within Newcastle Arts Centre.

The event will see four local musicians take to stage to perform a half an hour set of their own original music. The artists performing at Platform 22 this Saturday will be Lottie Willis, Conor Michael, The Stellar Anderson Project, and Eva Chasteau.

The audience will use a QR code to vote for their favourite performance of the night, and the winning artist will receive a monetary prize which will go towards funding for their musical career.
