This year’s Mega Musos – Battle of the Bands will see a change of venue as it takes centre stage at Tunarama Thursday evening.
The annual music event, presented by Port Lincoln Youth Advisory Committee and West Coast Youth and Community Support provides a chance for young and up-and-coming artists on Eyre Peninsula to showcase their abilities in front of a large crowd.
It is open to music groups across Eyre Peninsula with prizes including studio recording time with major sponsor Atlantis Studio.
While it has been held at the Nautilus Theatre in the past, this year the event will feature on the Tunarama Festival Mainstage.
Mega Musos organising team member Adam Brown said the venue change, and no entry fee should help bring more people to the event.

“With Mega Muso being on the foreshore now it will probably allow more people to watch it now,” he said.
Mr Brown said the event was a great opportunity to give these artists exposure.
Six artists have signed up for this year’s Mega Musos event, including Tascha Jordison of Port Lincoln who said she hoped other young performers in the community could be inspired by her and the other performers to enter in the future.
“Not a lot of people have the confidence to step forward yet to do something like this,” she said.
The event will begin on the main stage at 7pm.
