Media Release - Time to shine at Knox Factor 2019

If you’re a singer aged from 5 to 25 who lives, studies, works or plays in Knox, then Council’s Knox Factor 2019 may be your opportunity to shine.

Solo, non-professional vocalists in the following age groups are invited to apply:

The grand final performance will be held at the Carols by Candlelight pre-show on Saturday 7 December where finalists will have the opportunity to performing to a huge audience at one of Knox’s biggest community events.
