Knox Factor

Knox Factor: Your voice... the deciding factor!

NEW IN 2016!

Calling all singers, vocalists, divas and crooners, this year’s addition to the Knox Festival is your ticket to stardom!

The Knox Factor is a singing competition open to everyone 18 and under that lives, studies, works or plays in Knox. With auditions and heats narrowing the field to the best 10 singers in the area, the finals will be held on Saturday 5th of March at the Twilight Cinema at this year’s Knox Festival in front of 5,000 people! But that’s not all folks, not by a long way!

The winner of the Knox Factor will not only win the fame, glory and adoration of the city, but will also then be given the chance to sing on stage during the main show at the Knox Carols by Candlelight in December 2016 in front of over 12,000 people (the 2015 Carols event featured Paulini, Luke Kennedy and Skipping Girl Vinegar with 2016 shaping up to be just as huge)! Oh, and we’ll throw in $300 in Westfield vouchers as well!

REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED, come along and support the finalists at the Twilight Cinema on Saturday 5th of March!

All the details of the competition are in the terms and conditions (see the link below).
