Southbound Presents: Stagebound
A new format for Southbound's local band comp, and we're getting involved.
Southbound's local band comp is getting a little makeover in 2015 - putting the power of selecting the winner is your hands via voting system. Interested artists need to send Southbound their applications, from which they will finalise a shortlist of bands they feel have been working hard/making waves in the WA music scene. With a little help from reputable WA music media outlets The Music, Xpress and, urm... us, three finalists will be selected, and each media outlet will pick one finalist to root for during the month of November. All three finalists will be showcased one night in November (TBA), and finally, once your votes are tallied, the winner will be revealed.
The winner of Stagebound will open the Big Top stage on Saturday 3 January at Southbound 2015, plus voters go in the running to win a double Happy Camper pass.
Here's what you need to do:
