Redpipe.ca Summer Warfare 2007
Redpipe.ca Summer Warfare encompassed 28 shows that took place across Canada from July 4 to August 26, 2007. The first place band and the wildcard winner from each show moved on to a final online voting round, which was split into two divisions (one for Southern Ontario, and the second for the East and West combined). One band would prevail from each of these divisions to win the ultimate prize of traveling to Toronto and opening up for a huge headliner, provided by Redpipe.ca.
“Leave with Me” from London, Ontario won the Division 1 vote, with a 3% lead, and “Survivor Screams” finally triumphed over “Low Profile” by only 26 votes and 1% difference!
The top band in each poll received an all-access weekend to Canadian Music Week 2008 (March 5 – 8, 2008)! Prize includes transportation and accommodations for the entire festival, CMW Executive Conference passes for each member of the bands, and tickets to The Indies - Independent Music Awards on Saturday, March 8th! In addition, the bands each receive a festival showcase performance opening for a surprise headliner, and a feature in UR Magazine (a Rogers’ monthly music magazine distributed to over 170,000 youth customers).
Qualifying rounds took place from September 2007 to December 2007 across Canada. Winning bands from each of the shows will move on to participate in the City and/or Regional Finals in their hometown/region, which will determine the bands that will enter the National Online Vote.
Winning band of the National Online Vote will win the Grand Prize!
The winning band from the National Online Vote will perform at NXNE 2008 in Toronto! You play, we’ll get you there. Travel, accommodations, and $500 cash for each band member on us, courtesy of Redpipe.ca!
