All submissions must be recorded in the year of 2016. We will accept your entries on CD or in mp3/wav files via email or download.
Each band can enter up to 4 tracks for on air battles. We will accept up to 32 bands to compete in our double elimination tournament. There are three battles each day – one at 9am, one at Noon, and one at 3pm. We will play one song from two bands and open up our phone lines and facebook voting for one hour. For one hour Humboldt listeners, and your friends and family from afar can vote two ways. By phone by calling the studio at 707-786-5978 (please only call once per battle) and on the KWPT The Point’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/kwptthepoint). At the end of that hour, votes are tallied and announced. Winners move up, losers are only eliminated after 2 losses.
The On Air contest starts in early October(Dates subject to change). KWPT The Point has the right to refuse airplay whenever they deem so.
What’s the Point of the Contest?
This is simply a way for your Live and Local Rock N Roll Radio station to get our amazing local talent on the airwaves. And on top of the honor of sharing the airwaves with the likes of the Beatles and Zeppelin, your band can win all sorts of great prizes. (Prizes as of yet.. unknown) But nothing is greater than the bragging rights of knowing you are the best in Humboldt. And as a grand finale, the #1 voted band will open for our headliner Canned Heat live on November 12th at Blue Lake Casino and Hotel for our Classic Cover Contest Finale and 10th Birthday Bash.
