Wild Mountain Mashup

Play Wild Mountain... through the backdoor

In 2016, Jake Buckley won our third Wild Mountain Mashup competition and this year, he will open the festival on Friday night. Performers can win 8 hours of professional recording time with Dave Martineau of Blue Diamond Studio and one of 4 spots to play on the Wild Mountain Music Festival stage!

How It Works

Performers are given a chance to play in front of a panel of judges for the opportunity to win a spot on the stage at Wild Mountain. Spectators are treated to two nights of music at venues around Hinton. Support your local performers, learn about Hinton on Stage Concert Series and our amazing line-up, have some laughs and enjoy great music.

Watch for the 2017 schedule to be announced here!
