We're also are excited to be launching the Alleyway band competition, giving South Australian artists the chance to play the Adelaide Laneway Fest.

We're teaming up with five local media partners (F o u r w o r d sFormat Collective,  FasterLouderDb Magazine and Fringe Benefits) to help curate the event. These partners will each be selecting one band to compete in a live final held at one of Adelaide's premier grass roots music venues, The Ed Castle (233 Currie Street), on Wednesday January 25th.

In the lead up to the live final all partners will provide media coverage to their chosen act to raise their profile to the broader community. The lucky band will be chosen on the night based on their live performance. Stay tuned!
