Wild Mountain Mashup


Wild Mountain Mashup

In Partnership with Hinton Performing Arts Society

2016 is the second annual Wild Mountain Mashup. In 2015, the Mary-Lee Bird Band won the competition and this year, they 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 and a chance 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.


The first night of music will be May 28th at Sweet Lou's in Hinton Valley Shopping District, starting at 8:00pm the second will be on June 11th at the Legion.
