It's back! MoPOP’s Sound Off! Showcase is your chance to witness the next big thing in NW music as young artists from around the region take to the Sky Church stage for three nights of glory.   

This year the traditional battle of the bands showcase has changed and there will be more emphasis on artist development and growth. Every musician has to start somewhere, and young artists hoping to enter the music scene are faced with the daunting tasks of developing their own creative identity and technical skills while navigating the vast and complex music industry alone. That’s why Sound Off! participants receive year-round professional mentoring to guide them through the ins and outs of the industry, gathering insider knowledge, valuable community contacts, and life-changing experience as they gear up to show the world exactly what they have to say.  

Tomorrow’s biggest artists are already grabbing the mic with MoPOP’s Sound Off! Showcase here in the heart of Seattle. This year’s three live showcases are set for back-to-back weekends in February and March. Join us on February 25, March 4, and March 11 and say you were there from the beginning.
