Sail Across the Sun Soundcheck


Sixthman Soundcheck is the chance of a lifetime. We’re looking for 3 awesome acts to join us on the 7th Edition of Sail Across The Sun sailing February 17 - 21, 2023! Do you have what it takes?

How It Works

Round 1

The Top 10 semi-finalists will be voted on by guests booked on Sail Across The Sun, those on the Waiting List, as well as your fans, to determine the Top 5 acts. Voting will take place in October and will be hosted here on this page. Our booked guest votes will be weighted during the first round decisions, regardless of the overall total number of voters.

Round 2

The Top 5 acts will be narrowed down to 3 Soundcheck winners by our booked guests and those on the Waiting List in November.


Thursday, September 8th at 11:59pm ET: Artist deadline to complete the submission form below.

Late September/Early October : 10 semi-finalists, chosen by a panel of Sail Across The Sun experts at Sixthman, will be notified to move on to the voting round. Public announcement will be coordinated soon thereafter.
