Punch Your Ticket To Tall Pines

89.1 Max FM is partnering with Tall Pines to bring one local band the opportunity of a lifetime.

We’re inviting bands and musicians from across the area to compete in a Battle of the Bands event for a chance to be the opening act for the 2023 Tall Pines Music & Arts Festival, June 16th & 17th in Gravenhurst!

Here’s how it works:

  • Submit your music for consideration using the form below. Submissions must be received no later than Friday, April 14th 2023 at 11:59pm.
  • Your music will be shared on our website, where our listeners will be invited to vote for their favourite, and may be played on the radio as well.
  • Finalists will be invited to perform at one of three “Battle of the Bands” events on May 11th, 12th, or 13th.
  • A panel of judges from Max FM, Tall Pines, and our partners will determine the winning act, who will then be offered a performance slot at the festival on June 16th or 17th.

The sooner you submit your material, the sooner you can start getting votes! Get in touch with us using the form HERE
