Lift Off

Lift Off Music Comp is an opportunity for young Canberra bands, producers and singer-songwriters to showcase their art, perform in a professional and supportive environment, and be in the running for a prize pack full of services that will set them up to take that next step in their careers. 

The Heats

Heats One and Two were hectic - nothing but good vibes and great music!  All the performers were great but now it's down to the business end of the competition.  

Six performers will battle it out for the title of 2015 Lift Off Music Comp Champs! Congratulations and good luck to you all!
