Ever dreamed of performing alongside the hottest Hip Hop, Soul, Funk, Dub, Reggae and R&B artists in the world?
NSW Indigenous artists are invited for a chance to step onto a Good Vibrations stage in 2011. Jam Music and APRA are excited to announce that four Indigenous acts will have the opportunity to perform at the 2011 Good Vibrations Festivals in NSW, VIC, QLD or WA (one artist per Festival state) – opening the Roots stage in their home state.
The competition is open to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander bands whose members are 14+, and play live music in the style of Hip Hop, Soul, Funk, Dub or Reggae. Any underage performers will need to be accompanied by an adult guardian at all times and must agree to the terms and conditions as outlined in the application process.
Not only will the lucky winners get the chance to play alongside some of the best local and international names in the business including Koolism, Erykah Badu, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Nas & Damian Marley and Ludacris but they will also have the chance to meet some of the Good Vibrations Festival artists backstage on the day! To seal the deal, APRA will reimburse the travel expenses of each of the 4 winning acts, up to a maximum of $1000, plus winners will get extra tickets to the festival.
Judges for the competition include: Rhoda Roberts, VIBE Australia; Kira Fong, Goolarri Media Enterprises; Bebe Backhouse, Goolarri Media Enterprises; Michael Hutchings, Gadigal Music; Jessie Lloyd, Songlines Music Aboriginal Corporation; Micah Wenitong, Music NT.
