Performing in the senior band section were: Empire (Wangaratta High), Dropout Paradise (Carranballac College), Sounds of Unity (Woodridge State High), Common Boys (Cranbourne Secondary) , Disgruntled Architect (Templestowe College), Nana Klumpp (Camden Haven High ), and The Leftovers (Trafalgar High).

Performing in the Junior section were: Amplified (Caranballac College), Splinter Kiss (Euroa Secondary), Snake Rope  (Trafalgar High), In the Works (Templestowe College), and Next Generation (Narre Sth P12). Also worth mentioning were Zen, and Matt Broome, showcase solo artists who appeared in the heats.

Best Senior Band, The Leftovers won themselves a Gretsch drum kit and Fender Stratocaster, while the Best Junior Band, In The Works were rewarded with a PDP drum kit and Fender Rumble 200ww bass amp.

Taking time out from preparations for his national solo tour, guest judge Grinspoon’s Phil Jamieson was generous with his time and words.

Congratulations to Luc Travers and his team at Cranbourne Music for fostering young Australian talent through this wonderful project.
