Are you at the head of the class? triple j Unearthed are once again searching for the best High School act in the country.
Unearthed High will scour through the nation's classrooms in order to find the best high school music act. With alumni including Gretta Ray, Stonefield, Japanese Wallpaper and last year's reigning champ Arno Faraji, it's a pretty prestigious list to join!
“Unearthed High was a huge moment for me! A lot has happened, so fast, and it's boosted my music's reach so far. Only last year I was a senior in high school looking for a way to do what I get to do now: playing 'thicc' festivals, touring and making music with some of my favourite artists. I'm still geeking out over a lot of the things that are coming my way.”Arno Faraji
