FameCast is an artist discovery and entertainment community providing a nationwide, seasonal competition whereby an online audience determines tomorrow’s biggest stars. FameCast was founded to showcase legitimate artists who have yet to be discovered and whom the audience deems to be worthy of stardom. The FameCast online competition and community will provide contestants the ability to connect with and grow a national audience and compete to become a FameCast Fenom and win the grand prize worth $10,000 and global exposure.
Born in Austin, TX, the Live Music Capital of the World, FameCast is the first online competition designed to find America's best new talent. Knowing that lack of exposure is what keeps some of our best artists in the shadows, FameCast aims to shine the spotlight on those that have what it takes, but have lacked the breaks.
