This will be of interest to any band in and around Southern/Western Ontario. From the press release:
As part of Big Music Fest, the 3-day music festival being held at McLennan Park in Kitchener, details for Breaking Bands, an Ontario wide band search competition dedicated to finding and breaking the hottest emerging talent in the province are now available. Qualifying bands are urged to submit applications at www.sonicbids/breaking-bands
Mark Higgins, President and Owner of Big Music Fest, desired something different from other band competitions, so instead of just offering cash prizes and gear, the winning band will not only be given mentorship, touring opportunities and other unique prizing, but will also be filmed for a year leading up to their main stage performance at Big Music Fest 2015. The filming will cover rehearsals, studio time and live performances with a whole lot of “life in a band” thrown in! The finished documentary will be used as a promotional tool for the band to shop to industry professionals. The finals for Breaking Bands will take place on the opening night of Big Music Fest, on Friday, July 11, in front of a live audience.
When: Friday July 11, 2014
Where: McLennan Park, Kitchener
Time: 2:00pm to 10:30pm
