Final! York Street Studios Acid Test-this Sat 27/9

Hi there

This Saturday 27th Sept at 8pm (sharp) is the GRAND final of the York Street

Studios Acid Test here at the Temple! ($5)

The following 7 finalists have been selected from over 60 competitors, after a

grueling process of heats, semi-finals, and preparing business plans and press


Charlotte Johansen


Milk Milk Lemonade


Manu Bennett

Luke Bodle


The night will also feature last year's winner - St Lucy!

With the impending closure of the Temple, it will be the last time the York

Street Studios Acid Test will be held at this location, although it is likely

we will continue to produce the event in the future.

With over $15,000 worth of prizes, the competition is a fantastic chance for

musicians to not only take advantage of these prizes, but also; the exposure,

industry networking, career development and other great opportunities this

competition affords.

Unique for music competitions because only original material is permitted, any

genre and lineup is welcome and whilst there is a heavy focus on performance

and songwriting, there is also a strong emphasis on professionalism, marketing

and promotion, business planning, industry knowledge and commercial radio
