    Hi all,

    Some updates and changes regarding the competition due to feedback from some of our participants (and potential participants) regarding the tight time horizon as well as date of audition being held on a weekday.

    In summary, registration deadline has been pushed back to 20 April 2014.
    The competition will only be held on a single day (21 June 2014) and will consist of 2 rounds with 2 songs each.

    For each round, bands will perform 1 song of their choice and a rearranged version of another song selected from a pool of 5 songs chosen by the organizing committee.

    Up to $6,000 are up for grabs!!
