Call out for Quesnel bands

Two local bands can secure a spot during the Jobfest 2012 event July 4

Jobfest 2012 is all about the rock concert, however the innovative staff in the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation have imbedded career information in the touring show which they hope will excite and deliver the message about labour market opportunities.

The live stage show takes to the Friendship stage in LeBourdais Park July 4 between 2 – 8 p.m.

Local bands can also get in on the action with two spots to open the show. All genres can apply but they are primarily looking for rock bands. Each local band has two, 15-minute sets, the PA and audio engineer is provided, the band would need to bring their own backline (drums, amps, instruments, etc.) To send a submission contact

The touring headliner band is Acres of Lions,  a pop-rock band based in Victoria, BC. Their music is lyrically-driven and influenced by early 90s emo bands such as The Get Up Kids and Jimmy Eat World.

This youth-oriented event is designed to provide information and online tools to help young people choose a career. Two booths will be set up where youth can learn their options online while rocking the park.
