Young musicians converge on Southbank.

For it’s fifth consecutive year, the students of The Southbank Institute of Technology are gearing up to present The 2013 Rockschool Challenge; an initiative aimed at encouraging and fostering young musical talent in Brisbane.

The RockSchool Challenge is a battle of the bands style competition in which 5 high school aged artists will compete in each heat, every Wednesday during the month of May for the chance to perform at the final on the 29th of May. Our winners from heat 1 will progress through to the final to compete for $1500 worth off prizes from our generous sponsors Qmusic, Red Octopus and MusicLab.

Distortion, Asyra, Truth or Dare, Vantage Point and Half Spoken will prove a diverse and goose bump raising, spine tingle inducing line up for the first heat of The RockSchool Challenge.

A panel of industry figureheads; Stacey Coleman from Qmusic, Camille Canning from Sidekick Management and Grantly Sutch from the Brisbane Big Band will act as judges, adding to the legitimacy of the event in helping forge it’s reputation as a successful launching pad for a band’s debut into the Brisbane music scene.
