250 BANDS REGISTERED TO BE IN THE RUNNING
Winners of the 'She Who Rocks' tour support slots, featuring Baby Animals and The Superjesus, have been announced. The call out was made earlier in the year, with emerging bands from across the country encouraged to apply for a support slot using the GiggedIn platform, culminating in 250 bands joining and generating in excess of 22,000 votes from fans. The winning bands will be playing to packed venues with full houses in Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne, with the rest of the dates also expected to sell out.
After registering their interest via GiggedIn, all support bands went into a public vote, which then resulted in a shortlist of what can only be described as absolute talent, with more than 250 artists vying for the much sought after slots. The successful support acts were then chosen by an industry panel made up of ‘She Who Rocks’ promoters, Social Family Records, Baby Animals, and The Superjesus, with 10 artists receiving the good news that they are one of the bands that will be part of this year’s ‘She Who Rocks’ tour.
