Young talent to rock Brisbane

24 March, 2015

The spotlight will be on Brisbane’s next generation of musical talent next month, when Brisbane City Council launches a new initiative to uncover the city’s rising stars.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said the ‘QUBE Effect’ was a battle-of-the-bands style event which featured the artists recording their performance in a cube-shaped stage for online voting,” Cr Quirk said.

“The QUBE Effect is a new addition to this year’s Youth Week calendar, and includes free live music events for the public on two weekends next month,” Cr Quirk said.

“Shortlisted bands have been selected by a panel of experts from 4ZZZ, QMusic, Brisbane Marketing and the Caloundra Music Festival and will be scheduled to play at one of the events for their chance to win over the audience for the top prize.”

Following each live performance, the competing band will be escorted to the nearby ‘Qube’ – an intimate square-shaped performance stage – to record their best song for online voting to compete for the People’s Choice Award.

“The public will decide the winners of the People’s Choice Award, Best New Talent, and Best Original Song, which will be rewarded with cash prizes of up to $4000, and the chance to play at some of the city’s biggest events,” he said.

“Residents will be able to view the recorded songs via Council’s website and cast their vote for their favourite band from Friday 1 May to Friday 22 May, with the winner to be announced in early June.”

The QUBE Effect live performances will be held on Saturday April 11 at South Bank Parklands, and Sunday 19 April at Roma Street Parkland from 11am to 5 pm.

“I encourage friends, family members as well as the music-loving public to support this new music event and bring a crowd to support our up-and-coming local bands.”
