Music SA has announced the winners of the annual Bands on Track competition – six SA acts who will perform in the Superloop Adelaide 500After Race Concert Series, opening for some of the biggest names in international and Australian music.
With fierce competition in 2019, an all-time record 280 acts submitted entries, which were then judged by a panel of music industry representatives.
Now in its ninth year, the Bands on Track initiative is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Music SA and the Superloop Adelaide 500.
This year’s winning artists will have the opportunity to share a stage with the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Jet, The Living End, Vance Joy and Amy Shark.
Music SA’s Chief Executive Lisa Bishop is delighted that the Bands on Track partnership is returning for another year to support South Australian musicians and was thrilled to see a record number of entries in 2019.
“Bands on Track has been a special long standing partnership with motor sport,” she said. “As an UNESCO City of Music, it showcases the incredible musical talent produced in SA. This is a rare career defining opportunity for local artists to perform on a large stage, to a highly receptive crowd, with an outstanding level of technical production and the support of national and international headliners.”
