Council to host Audio Overload

14 March, 2014Posted in: Community, Events

Wingecarribee Shire Council is calling on the region’s musical youth to take part in Audio Overload, a band competition scheduled for Saturday 12 April at the Bowral Memorial Hall.

Organised in conjunction with the Youth Hub Advisory Group, Audio Overload seeks to highlight the diverse young musical talent on offer across the Shire.

Council’s Youth Liaison Facilitator, Michelle Williams said organisers were looking for a variety of acts.

“With so much great young musical talent across the Shire, we’re confident that we can attract a great range of acts,” she said. “Bands, duos, instrumental acts and solo artists are all welcome to take part.”

“The idea behind the event is to not only showcase some of our Shire’s amazing young talent, but to give some of our budding artists a taste of what may be their first live audience,” Ms Williams added.

The competition is open to musicians aged between 12 and 24 years of age who live, work or attend school, TAFE or University within the Southern Highlands.

“I encourage all of our young artists to get on board and support this great event.

“However spaces are limited so I urge anyone wanting to participate to contact Council in advance,” Michelle said.

Expressions of Interest must be received no later than Monday 24 March.

“Audio Overload really is a fabulous opportunity for our Shire’s young musicians to develop their talents and music lovers to witness some of our brightest rising stars.”

Winners of the two major categories – Best band and Best acoustic set – will both receive a recording contract with True Sound Engineering.

Audio Overload will be an alcohol and drug-free event and will be fully supervised.
