Entries open for Alpine Shire Push Start Music Competition

18 January 2018

The Mount Beauty Youth Crew is encouraging young local musicians to enter the 2018 FReeZA Push Start Music Comp which is being held on Saturday 21 April as part of the Mount Beauty Music Festival.

The Push Start Comp showcases young musicians aged 12 – 25, giving them the opportunity to perform, gain local exposure, and earn a place on the Grand Final line up.

Local heats are hosted across the state each year from March to August, with the winners going on to compete in Regional Finals from September to December. Winners from the eight regional finals then go onto compete in the grand final held as part of the annual St Kilda Festival in February each year.

The Push Start competition is open to any style of music, including bands, soloists, duos, hip hop artists, electronic acts, acoustic acts, etc and is of particular benefit to artists performing original material.

Last year Mount Beauty’s Zoe Kromar and Millie Smith won the Alpine Heat and went on to perform at the Regional Final which was held in Bright in October with the Squid Doctors from Indigo Shire eventually going on to the State Finals. This year the musicians who participate in the local competition have the chance to win a main stage gig at the 2019 Mount Beauty Music Festival as well as a spot at the Push Start Regional Finals.

All entrants will receive a goodie bag which includes free tickets to the Mount Beauty Music Festival, featuring The Northern Folk, The Hot Springs and Charm of Finches.

For more information or to get an application form, young musicians should contact Youth Development Officer Jenny Corser on 0419 915 319 or ydo@alpineshire.vic.gov.au.
