There are some pretty big names on the Sound of Music stages – and they all started in a basement somewhere and did the rounds of the bars in some of those ‘Godforsaken towns’ in the province.

No one “started out”  at the Sound of Music Festival – you earn your way to their stages.

Sound of Music will get no sympathy from Alexandre Kubrak were she to be elected a Council member. She thinks the event should be looking for additional sponsors - she's not the only one with that thought.

Sound of Music – huge crowds descend on the city – everything is about the music.

The Festival is now accepting band submissions for next year’s event that will take place June 9-17, 2018.

The Festival line-up features an eclectic blend of emerging artists, past favourites and current performers. Past shows have included: Marianas Trench, 54-40, Walk Off The Earth, Our Lady Peace, The Tea Party.

The Festival celebrates Canadian and local musical talent, with a preference to performances with a repertoire of original music, and for those who have not played at the Festival in the past 2-3 years.

Sound of music - from stage

He “owns” that stage and the crowd is all his!

The Sound of Music wants to know if you have local roots – make sure you let them know about what you’ve done in the local market.

The required questions must be fully answered. Compensation is provided and will be negotiated at the time of booking.

We will accept applications via Sonicbids from October 2 to December 31, 2017.

Please include:

Band name and short bio (100 words)
A minimum of 2 songs
Contact information
Suggested performance fee

Due to the high volume of submissions, those sent via mail, e-mail or social media will not be considered. Only those sent via Sonicbids will be contacted.

Never forget that Walk Off the Earth was once just four guys and a gal and one guitar.
