Harbourfront Centre was looking for Toronto’s hottest artists and bands to take center stage this summer and compete for the SoundClash Music Award, with $10,000 in cash prizes up for grabs. With over 200 entries, our panel of judges went through lots of amazing material from independent artists all across the GTA; however, only 5 bands were chosen to compete for the top spot, performing throughout the month of July here at Harbourfront Centre on the West Jet Stage. The winners were announced last week at a media gala here at Harbourfront Centre (see images below). The top 5 are (in no particular order): Young Empires; Kids & Explosions; Saidah Baba Talibah; The Worst Pop Band Ever; Miles Jones. Here is a video montage of the finalists.
We’ll be posting interviews with each of the finalists (among other content) over the next few months, so stay tuned to our blog for announcements and details. For further details on Soundclash, click here. Great FREE music, now there’s something to look forward to this summer!
