Submissions Open for Harbourfront Centre’s SoundClash 2015Tuesday, March 31st, 2015
Harbourfront Centre is set to launch its GTA-wide search for cutting-edge, independent artists with the SoundClash Music Awards. As of April 1, musicians across the GTA are invited to apply for the chance to be heard on Harbourfront Centre’s stage, take home a share of the $10,000 in cash and prizes, and be crowned SoundClash champion. Submissions close on May 10.
The top five contenders chosen by a jury of music-industry tastemakers will bring their music to the Harbourfront Centre’s Party on the Block festival. A combination of jury votes and public online voting will determine the winner.
Along with the title, musicians will vie for the chance to win cash and prizes from Moog Audio, MUSI Artist Development, Music Ontario, VocalCoach.ca and WestJet as well as the chance to perform on Harbourfront Centre’s WestJet Stage at the Hot & Spicy Food festival.
1st Prize: $5,000
2nd Prize: $3,000
3rd Prize: $2,000
To enter the competition, artists must be from Greater Toronto Area (including Durham, Halton, Peel, and York). Each artist or band must be independent with no attachment or affiliation to major record labels in order to be eligible. Participants must also be available to perform at Harbourfront Centre’s Party on the Block festival, July 10-12, and the Hot & Spicy Food festival, September 4-7.
Submissions can be made through Sonicbids.com from April 1-May 10, 2015 or by emailingsoundclash@harbourfrontcentre.
