THE BIG SPLASH 2016 GRAND FINAL

Rosemount Hotel, Saturday 3 September

In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Big Splash band competition was established in 2013 and has helped a number of promising local acts get off the ground.

This year, 32 bands have played across eight heats, with one winner from each heat making it through to the semi-finals, and now, four bands are left to compete for the grand final prize of $10,000.

The final showdown takes place this Saturday night at The Rosemount Hotel from 8pm and features garage/psych rockers Moistoyster, smooth-grooving up-and-comers Moon Puppy Blues Band, the explosive hip hop/jazz infusion POW! Negro and cruisy pop-rockers Segue Safari.

Tickets are $20 on the door.

Previous winners include the likes of Scalphunter, Hideous Sun Demon and Jacob Diamond.
