Rockshop Bandquest

Rockshop Bandquest  is a platform for the next generation of contemporary musicians to step out and perform in a supportive and encouraging competition format, with a focus on education, inspiration and entertainment. 

Rockshop Bandquest aims  to provide a goal for young contemporary musicians to focus on, offer incentives for them,  provide them with inspiration and information from other young performers, and  to support Music staff, and the great work they are doing with these students

The event  showcases 1103 performers from 109 Intermediate schools in 14 regions.

Rockshop Bandquest is a Band Competition for bands (2-12 members) younger than Year 9, with everything performed live; no prerecorded or mechanically performed instruments /vocals.

Step 1 Get a band together from your school, fill out an entry form, (available April 2016), and post or fax it to us. (Due late July)

Step 2 Select and Start practicing two songs . You get 6 min to perform, so you will need to juggle things carefully to fit. You can join songs together in a medley if you wish. You can write your own songs too, if you want to, but its not compulsory. (There is an award for best original song)

Step 3 You perform at your closest Regional Final in August ( check the dates on the Regions page) or if your school is more than an hour away from the closest event, you can enter via video for the On-line Final. (Due 1st September)

Step 4 Footage of Winners (supplied by band) of each Regional Final, and the Online Final are posted on our website. The Judges will select the National Winner from this footage to be announced late September.

Step 5 We record and film the National winners!

You will be competing for a prize package from The Rockshop at each Final for your school music department.
