K Comp Vol. 3 is taking applications from rock musicians to be part of the music festival and recording sessions this fall.

Kelowna’s Classic Rock station K96.3 and Music BC host the competition.

Already local artists have had the chance to mingle and meet people in the industry at the Music BC Keloha SchMusic BC Boat Party held on July 7 aboard the Boardroom houseboat.

Applications for K Comp Vol. 3 will be open until Sept. 10. Once submissions are closed, all applications will be juried by a panel of industry professionals who will whittle down the applicants.

On Sept. 12, the top 12 artists will be announced live on air on K96.3—Kelowna’s Classic Rock.

Being part of K Comp is only one of the perks for the musicians as they also have the opportunity to take part in a career development series presented by Music BC. Here they receive insider tips and mentoring from some of today’s leading music industry professionals.

This year artists will take part in the K Comp Showcase Series—three shows that will take place during the month of November.

A number of Downtown Kelowna venues will host the series and will provide K Comp artists with the opportunity to hone their skills and perform to a larger festival crowd.

The competition is a commitment towards the development of the next generation of local artists. To apply visit http://kcomp.ca.
