The Fan’s Choice round of the Road to Rockin’ River Talent Search is now open! Vote for your favourite daily until the poll closes Sunday!
The Road to Rockin’ River is back and bigger than ever for its 3rd year! 2018 comes with some exciting changed to the format, including the introduction of an online qualifier that is sure to showcase a wider demographic of undiscovered talent.
Road to Rockin’ River will kick off with Online Qualifiers – a Video Submission round open to all solo artists, duos and trios 16 years of age and up! ** A panel of BC music industry professionals will choose the Top 100 who will compete at 5 venues across the province.
Also new to 2018, a Fan’s Choice category will allow competitors the chance to qualify through online votes!
Live Competitions will narrow the Top 100 down to the Top 5 – one from each venue – to compete in the Championship Round live at the Rockin’ River Music Fest in Merritt, BC on August 2nd, 2018.
