Rock the South has been going strong since 2009 and is a chance for amateur music newcomers to show off their talent while giving a crowd a free concert and the chance to see local talent live.
This year’s competition will see Fehl-Tritt (punk/ska punk), Arduinna’s Dawn (symphonic metal), Atomic Rocket Seeds (rock-metal) and Calypso’s Call (nu metal) compete to win this year’s title of best newcomer band.
Legacy of Atlas, the winner of the 2018 contest (pictured), and the headlining metal group from Niederkorn, Lost in Pain, will welcome the newcomer bands to the stage.
Performances in the competition are limited to 30 minutes, during which time the group has to convince the jury with their music and stage presence.
A jury, comprised of professionals and music lovers, will name a winner, who will receive €1,000 Holtz Sound voucher, a spot to perform in the 2020 concert, as well as a recording session. Another prize will also be awarded for a group to perform at the “On Stéitsch” 2020 festival.
