Tall Tree Music Festival opens doors to aspiring artists

Winner of the contest get chance to play in the Port Renfrew festival in June

Are you an artist hoping to play at the Tall Tree Music Festival this year? Well, here’s your chance.

Budding artists can apply to enter the Play Tall Tree Contest. Applications close May 12.

A panel of music industry professionals will consider all applications, and select 15 artists to be announced to the public, where they will gain valuable exposure—and have their music heard by the community.

Following the success of last year’s live showcase, Tall Tree Music Festival and Do250 will co-host the 2017 Finale Showdown at Sugar Nightclub in Victoria on June 2 where finalists will perform to decide the winner.

“The Play Tall Tree Contest is a reflection of festival’s mandate to discover and develop local and emerging artists,” says Emmalee Brunt, a festival spokesperson.

To submit an application, please go online to do250.com/p/playtalltree.

The Tall Tree Music Festival is held in Port Renfrew from June 23 to 26.
