Vancouvers live music scene is in for a big boost with the help of the Elevate Music Project. This project created by the MRG was made not only to help support local emerging artists, but to also “showcase musicians of all genres from across the province and give them a platform to develop and advance their careers”. Through this help emerging artists can get the exposure they need and finally make their dreams come true.
This competition will be help at three locations, The Biltmore Cabaret, The Imperial and the Vogue Theatre. It will feature a four person panel judge table with industry pros from Vancouver being the judges. Prizes are designed to help the upcoming artists, totalling over $50,000. The winner of this competition will get a spot in the Westward Music Festival 2020 lineup, an article in Beatroute Magazine and online media support, a cash prize of $2500, a $2500 gift certificate for Long & McQuade, press photos taken by a professional photographer, and even more unannounced prizes.
Six local musicians/bands will battle it out for a place at the semi-finals hosted at the Imperial. Two acts a night will be chosen by our panel of industry professionals to move to the next round of the competition.
This Friday night will feature a performance from Sound Cinema, and you can get your tickets at eventbrite.ca. The doors will open at 7:00pm on Friday night and the event is 19+. Tickets will be $5.
