The Blockstar UK Open Mic Tour, in association with Link Up TV, is an all genres open mic competition that spans the whole of the UK. The competition is set over 3 stages with the UK being split up into 4 districts: North, East, South & West.

Stage 1 is the Social Media Round. Contestants send a 30-60 second clip of them spitting or singing on a beat to @trademarktheblock along with their £10 entry fee. The 4 contestants from each zone with the most combined likes using Instagram and Facebook will go through to the Live Semi-Finals.

Stage 2 is the Live Semi-Finals. The 4 contestants will perform live in front of 3 celebrity judges who have influence in the music and media industry. Judges include Grizzy 150, Benny Banks and Big Narstie. The winner by judges selection will go through to the finals.
