The top 140 acts in the general Talent Search and the top 200 acts in the Mzansi Music Talent Search competition will then get the opportunity to compete against each other at Grand West on the Funderland Talent Stage, during these coming March holidays, between 28 March and 7 April.

The regional winners of both the General Talent Search and The Mzansi Music Talent Search will then compete at the National Finals in Durban during the December holidays. A recording deal(for the National overall winners of both the General Talent Search, as well as the Mzansi Music Search), the possibility to appear on TV and other great prizes are at stake!

The next round of the Talent Search will open up soon for the Gauteng Region, as the Funderland Festival is going to Carnival City during the June school holidays. Please like our Funderland Family Festival page to see when entries for this region will open up.

After the Gauteng Talent Search, the Funderland Family Festival will still travel to Bloemfontein for the September School holidays and then end up in KZN at MABHIDA People’s Park for the December Holidays, when the overall winners of both the Funder Talent and the Mzansi Talent will be crowned.
