Ampfest 2016

Last chance for 5 acts to win $500 & more to play Ampfest!

15 Feb

AmpFest is back for 2016, and this time they’ve upped the stakes so all successful entrants are winners! The program is looking  for bands, duos and solo artists aged 12-25 of any genre, from which four acts plus one wildcard band will be selected to play at the AmpFest 2016 all-ages show on April 10. Best of all, ALL 4 successful acts selected to play will receive a payment of $500! Plus you’ll get free electrical tagging, and the chance to play in front of a live audience.

The four bands will be chosen by a panel of music fans and industry experts. Don’t make the cut? Don’t stress, you have even another chance, with a few extra acts added to a Wildcard pool and invited to play at the City of Cambridge’s Open Mic Night event on March 11.  One successful band from the Wildcard event will be crowned the people’s choice and will be selected to perform with the other acts at AmpFest, also receiving $500 to play this show!

To take advantage of this great opportunity, entering couldn’t be easier either, with just basic details and links required.

But hurry, this entries close 11.59pm this coming Monday 22 February 2016.
