It’s that time of year again! With so many talented bands interested in playing our StrangeCreek Campout, we created these friendly annual ‘battles’ to give bands a shot at earning their way onto our festival stages by the best measure we know: strutting their stuff LIVE in a venue, showing us what they can do where it counts most – in front of a crowded dancefloor.
THINK YOUR BAND WOULD FIT IN AT STRANGECREEK CAMPOUT?
Here’s how it works:
1. BAND SUBMISSIONS & ONLINE VOTING (Jan14 – Feb18)
BANDS (yes, has to be band!) sign up starting JANUARY 1 for the online voting stage. Note: Sign up early! Voting only goes through February 18! FANS, Check out the 2019 Band Registry and VOTE starting January 14. **NEW THIS YEAR: Vote for up to THREE bands!
