The Final Round:

Rounds 1 & 2 winners, along with the Preliminary "Fan Favorite" will be playing a set for an all new panel of judges at Dalton Center.

The winner of this round, and the final "Fan Favorite" will be given the opportunity to play at Shakespeare's Lower Level on March 23rd!

Battle Ground: Shake's:

Head to Shakespeare's Lower Level to celebrate the 2018 winner and fan favorite performing alongside touring bands Atsuko Chiba, and Longface!

This event is 21+

FAN FAVORITE?

What does that mean:

During the Preliminary Rounds, we will allow listeners to vote for their favorite band.

 

Whichever band has the most cumulative votes & hasn't won a round will get the chance to redeem themselves, advancing them to the Final Round in Dalton. 

How/where can I vote:

We will be posting on our social media, asking for your vote!

Follow @WIDRFM on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook

After each preliminary round we will post a poll asking who your favorite was. We will be counting the votes at the end of each round, and announcing the "Fan Favorite" at the end of Round 2. 

Make sure you vote!!!!
