Calling all local musicians. 🎶 Registration is now open for bands of 3+ to enter the Road to Nightfall Competition.

Chattanooga Presents!, in partnership with SoundCorps, is using this “band development” initiative to prepare acts for the big stage. Preliminary auditions are April 6-8 + 13-14 at 8 p.m. at The Granfalloon, (400 E. Main St.).

One winner from each night will advance to the finals on May 6, where they will then compete for a paid 90-minute headlining spot at Nightfall — the free concert series on Friday nights from May 26 through Sept. 1 in Miller Park + Miller Plaza.

Pro tip: While there is a $25 registration fee upon acceptance of applications, bands can inquire about scholarships via email.
