Sound Search

Latest photos

The Foreshore Sound Search is a platform to showcase local talent and give two unsigned DJs or live acts the chance to play at Foreshore 2012!

Unsigned artists are given a chance to register at the Sound Search website and the public is then able to vote for their favourite acts to play in the live finals thanks to Kicks, OutInCanberra and Raw FM.

The top three DJ’s and the top three bands as voted by the public will then preform live in front of a panel of judges in the regional finals, in either Wagga or Canberra.

On the night the judges will score each act on their live performance, crowd interaction, crowd reaction, skill and originality. The scores will be tallied and the winner will be announced on the night at each live final. 

There will be two regional finals in Canberra at Academy Club and Wagga at Romano's Hotel. 

At the finals, both the live acts and the DJ’s will be judged equally, and there will be only one winner, a live act or a DJ at each final.
