X Factor 2016 audition dates: Mobile try out locations revealed

X Factor auditions 2016: Mobile auditon dates and venues

X Factor 2018 audition dates

Dates for the first X Factor 2016 mobile auditions have been revealed, starting next week across the UK.

The new way of trying out for the show was first used in 2012 and has since become a regular part of the X Factor audition process.

The Mobile Auditions will travel the UK over the next few weeks, allowing budding artists to try out in locations where the bigger open X Factor audition tour doesn’t reach.

The most glamorous van on telly (we expect) will begin its hunt for talented solo artists and vocal groups in Skegness and Sheffield later this month.

Previous winner James Arthur originally tried out when the mobile try outs came to Middlesborough, proof that they do work and that it could be the start of a journey to become The X Factor winner.

There's no need to register, just turn up on the day (with a form of ID) and sing. You're advised to come early and those under the age of 18 will need a parent or legal guardian present.

More mobile audition dates will be confirmed in due course, head over to the ITV website for the latest information.
