Shine On

Igniter Productions recently announced the third season of its Shine On Series, offering winners the opportunity to earn spot on the Lynchburg Music Fest 2020 stage.

The Shine On Series is a chain of events showcasing the original compositions of musicians of all genres and providing artists with a platform to perform in Southeastern Tennessee. Participants submit two songs.

The entry fee for performers is $50 for two songs if the artist gets picked to perform. Igniter selects 10 artists per show (40 per season).

The selected artists then perform for a panel of judges curated for each event.

The winner of each night gets a little cash, the opportunity to work with Igniter on a publishing deal and a slot in the 2020 Lynchburg Music Fest.

Cash prizes are $400 for the judges’ pick and $100 for the crowd favorite.

The competitions will be held at the Lynchburg Winery, 34 Hiles St., Lynchburg.

Dates for this season’s events are Feb. 1, March 7, April 4 and May 2. The shows start at 6:30 p.m.

Everyone is invited to watch the competitions. Tickets are $5 for a single seat or $50 for a reserved table that seats five. Tables are limited.

The inaugural Lynchburg Music Fest was a two-day music and camping festival held on Aug. 23-24 featuring dozens of country and bluegrass bands on three stages in Wiseman Park in Lynchburg.
