Announcing Be the Best, Play the Fest

Are you a local musician in the Sea-to Sky Corridor or Sunshine Coast? Mountain FM and Gibbons Whistler want to send you to play at Pemberton Music Festival.

Bands are asked to submit original songs (no covers) through the Play the Fest opportunity on Muzooka. Five finalists will compete for a spot in Pemberton Music Festival’s lineup and $10k in total prize money. The competition is open to any genre. Entrants must be (19) years of age or older at the date of entry.

This is the third annual Mountain FM Be the Best, Play the Fest presented by Gibbons Whistler. Last year they chose eight bands to perform live at the Meadows at Pemberton Golf Course with $5000 in prize money and a spot on the Pemberton Music Festival lineup going to the winner. The 2nd place winner was invited to perform at Whistler Olympic Plaza on the Wednesday night before the Festival kicked off.

This year, prizes include $5,000 plus a spot on the Pemberton Music Festival Lineup for first place; $2,000 for second, plus a spot in the line up at Whistler Olympic Plaza on the Wednesday night before the Festival begins; and $1000 for places 3rd through 5th.  And of course, plenty of mentions on Mountain FM, the only local radio station covering the entire Sea-to-Sky Corridor and the Sunshine Coast.
