Perisher has joined forces with PlayStation and designed a competition that gives aspiring bands a leg up.

Launch Your Band is a National competition that is open to unsigned bands, electronic groups, DJs and solo acts, and will give one lucky person or band the chance to have their song featured as the soundtrack to the Perisher 2011 Freeride TV commercial and feature on the Perisher ‘Best of’ online video clips.

If that’s not enough, the winning band also gets to perform live at the Perisher Spring Carnival in September 2011, and snag a Perisher Snow Holiday for up to six people worth $1000 per person, a PlayStation3 Move prize pack and a Nikon Camera.

In operation since 2007, Launch Your Band has earned a name for launching the careers of bright young local artists. But it’s not only the grand prize winner who is rewarded; four runners’ up will be featured on the Perisher website, included in the ‘Best of’ online video clips, and will also bag a Nikon camera and PlayStation3 Move prize pack.

For those of you who are devoid of musical talent, you can still vote for your favourite song online, and go in the draw to win a Snow Holiday just by doing so. All entries will be uploaded to the Perisher jukebox online, ready for the world to stream.

Launch Your Band entries open on the 28 March and will close 24 of April. To enter, visit and follow instructions. Entry is free and the winner will be drawn on Wednesday 2 May 2011.
