Three regional media partners of DeLuna Fest, WKSM (Ft. Walton Beach), TK101 (Pensacola/ Mobile) andWZEW/ ModMobilian.com (Mobile) will each host an individual contest where a selected winner will continue and compete in the final, live “Battle of the Bands.”
“The Gulf Coast communities are an integral part to what DeLuna Fest is all about,” said DeLuna Fest managing partner Scott Mitchell. “It’s the fans that champion DeLuna Fest and rally to show the rest of the world that the Gulf Coast knows how to throw the ultimate beach party. This is our way of including the fans and community in Pensacola’s own world-class music festival lineup.”
The live battle finale will take place Friday, August 31, 2012 at Seville Quarter. A winning band from each WKSM, TK101, and WZEW/ MobMobilian contests will go head to head by performing two songs each in front of a panel of notable judges including Gus Brandt – Booking Director of DeLuna Fest and Tour Manager for Foo Fighters, Scott Mitchell – Managing partner of DeLuna Fest, and Joani Delezen – Music Editor for Independent News. The grand prize winning band will be awarded a slot on the DeLuna Fest lineup and will perform on the main stage during the Sept 21 – 23, 2012 festival.
