Push on to find young local talent
7 June 2016
Are you an unsigned musician under the age of 21? Do you have a passion for live performance or songwriting you want to share? Then Kingston’s Fuse Productions want to hear from you for next month’s Battle of the Sounds heat.
Presented by Kingston’s youth-led Fuse Productions crew, Victorian Government’s FReeZA program and The Push Inc., Battle of the Sounds will feature talented young local performers and bands playing live to an all ages audience. Performers of all styles, grooves or genres are encouraged to apply - whether you’re a solo artist, a duo or a band, this could be your chance to make a splash on the music scene.
The Kingston heat is on Friday 19 August, so there’s still time to get your act together and apply to get involved. It’s your chance to catapult your music into the spotlight! To enter, you just have to be younger than 21 and have a connection to Kingston.
You could win a music industry prize pack, plus the chance to progress into the regional heats and even the grand final at next year’s Moomba festival. Last year’s Kingston winners, local band Mother Culture, went on to win the regional heat and perform at the grand final.
The event is planned, run and managed by a crew of young people aged 14-25 from the Kingston area. Kingston Youth Services is also recruiting for crew members with an interest in events, marketing, music and audio engineering to get involved.
The FReeZA and Fuse Production event is an all-ages smoke, drug and alcohol-free event. Tickets $10 at the door.
Battle of the Sounds is on 6pm-9pm on Friday 19 August at Allan McLean Hall, corner Lewis and Albert streets, Mordialloc.
