Herne Bay Rocks is a live music showcase and competition spanning 7 heats in 7 different local venues known for hosting regular live entertainment and featuring over 30 acts! The heats are followed by a final at the magnificent Kings Hall featuring the 3 highest scoring acts from throughout the week to compete in a ‘Playoff’ to win recording studio time, 100 CDs of their finished recording, a professional photo-shoot from a respected music industry photographer, and a live performance on the main stage finale event of Bayfest.
There are 2 categories: Full bands, and Acoustic, and every year the competition introduces us to a real mix of different genres that you may not get the chance to see in the Bay otherwise. There’s always some real talent and some surprises on offer, with previous winners going on to gain record contracts, supporting major named artists on tour, TV appearances, and winning prestigious BBC Music Awards. So to coin a phrase; see them here first!
All events including the final at the Kings Hall are free entry and family friendly, so there is no reason to not experience Herne Bay’s most popular and successful annual live music experience. Brought to you in partnership with the Kings Hall and Radio Cabin 94.6FM.
