VOICE OF BVJ KARAOKE CONTEST
Infinite Event Services and ArrKann Trailers are pumped to bring back The Voice of Big Valley Karaoke Contest. This contest has been running for over 20 years with some notable winners like the late Shane Yellowbird, Candice Ryan and Mat Cardinal. We give you an opportunity to experience the rush of performing at an iconic Country Music Festival.
Join hosts Barney Evans and Jammin’ Jamie for the open karaoke shows that will run in the Watering Hole where anyone can come in and sing their favorite song. Over the first 3 days 16 talented singers will be invited to perform in the finals Sunday afternoon where our judges will crown the ArrKann Trailer Voice of BVJ 2023 winner. The winner will perform 1 song on the Sirius XM Stage in the Coors Original Saloon that night in front of thousands and thousands of country music fans.
No other festival gives their guests a chance to sing on the same stage as stars like Luke Combs, Dallas Smith, Brothers Osborne and so many other greats.
Don’t worry if you don’t want to compete. Karaoke has always meant to be fun so come down with your friends and get your sing on.
Registration for the finalists takes place on Sunday from 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm.
