Regional Song Contest 2016 - YOUR time to shine
For the third time the Regional Song Contest by fRETfEST is searching for young talented singer-songwriters from regional Australian communities. The annual song contest is aimed at youth aged 13-19 years, who are unsigned, with original songs to be submitted.
