The chance to cross “Playing Summerfest” off your bucket list is back.
ROCKONSIN is a Wisconsin statewide garageband competition for 7th – 12th grade musicians of all musical genres. It’s free for bands to apply by uploading a performance video.
The 12 statewide finalist bands will be announced on Aug. 1 and will play at Summerfest Sept. 3-4. The winner and runner-up will perform on Sept. 18, along with the winner and runner up from the 2020 contest, since Summerfest was cancelled last year.
A spot at the World’s Largest Music Festival isn’t the only prize.
The top two bands will receive a professional recording session at Madison’s Blast House Studios.
Each of the 12 state finalist bands will receive a Shure vocal and instrument microphone with cords. The winning band will also receive a Shure wireless vocal microphone.
Bands can find more information and apply for free by July 15 at the Rockonsin website.
