Be a Judge for Sound Off

Do you want a say in who wins the 2nd Annual Young & Free Maine Sound Off Music Competition? This is your chance.


Young & Free Maine is giving you more chances to win BIG PRIZES as part of Sound Off. For this contest, it’s all about the music fans. We’re looking for a special guest judge to attend the live audition and help choose the top three winners out of the five finalists.

The winner will receive a spot at the judges’ table and will have a hand in picking the three Sound Off winners. You’ll have the chance to connect with some big players in Maine’s music industry. You’ll also get a $100 iTunes gift card to fuel your love for music and passes to this year’s KahBang Festival to see the top two Sound Off winners and many other acts perform live!

What do you have to do to walk away with this awesome prize pack? It’s simple.
