The level of competition and number of entries was incredible this year, and the organisers found it extremely difficult to narrow it down to just four nominees in each of the 12 talent categories:

Best Vocal, Best Drummer, Best Bass Player, Best Guitarist, Best Keys Player, Best Cover Song, Best Original Song, Song of the Year, Futures Award, Best Junior Band, Best Solo/Duo, Best Senior Band.

Finally, well done to Mr Simon Lane, Canterbury’s Rock School Coordinator for all his hard work behind the scenes, driving our participation and performance in this Australia-wide RockFest competition.

Rock on people!!
