The Falls Music & Arts Festival Foster Band Initiative returns for the third year in 2013 to uncover more talented Tasmanian musicians. For the past two years our Tasmanian media friends have hand picked the cream of the musical crop from their State. Once again they will spend October shining a light on the act of their choice and convincing you that their band deserves your vote.  The prize is monumental – winners will join the Falls 2013 Falls line up along side the likes of The Roots, The Violent Femmes, London Grammar, Neil Finn, MGMT, Vampire Weekend and many more!
Keep your eyes peeled to The Mercury, The Examiner, The Advocate, Warp Magazine, Togatus, The Tasmanian Times and Aphra Magazine throughout October and get to know your local stars a little better.

Voting opens October 1st and closes October 31st, with the winners being announced November 8th.

This year the festival has introduced a discount for local Tasmanian residents! Tickets sold at the following retail outlets from 9am August 29 will receive a discount of $10 per ticket: Centertainment in Hobart, Collectors Corner in Burnie or  Mojo Music in Launceston.
