Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Court­ney Fowler

Three lo­cal bands have been se­lected as fi­nal­ists to bat­tle it out for the chance to open the 2016 North West Fes­ti­val.

The Best of North West com­pe­ti­tion re­turns for a fifth year, as Miss Max, Bo­jesse Pi­gram and Man­hat­tan’s Wake com­pete for your vote to join the likes of the Rubens, Xavier Rudd and the Veron­i­cas at the fes­ti­val, from Au­gust 19-21. A Sun­set Events spokes­woman said the com­pe­ti­tion pro­moted un­signed North West artists try­ing to crack the WA mu­sic scene.

“Each year, thanks to Red FM and the Best of the North West ini­tia­tive, one lucky lo­cal North West act wins the chance to share the stage with the in­cred­i­ble cal­i­bre of acts mak­ing their way to the North West Fes­ti­val,” she said.

“Rolling around again this year, this year’s comp has un­earthed some ab­so­lute gems hid­ing away in the small towns of the beau­ti­ful North West.

“Our fi­nal­ists have been en­tered into an on­line e-poll, so head over to the North West Fes­ti­val web­site to cast your vote.”

This year’s grand prize in­cludes the open­ing slot at the 2016 North West Fes­ti­val, a $500 Kos­mic voucher and an in­ter­view with Red FM and Spirit Ra­dio.

Vot­ing for the Best of North West com­pe­ti­tion is open un­til Monday, July 18.
