How does it work?

On the morning of August 13th at 11AM all the selected musicians gather at the fifty fifty arts collective's gallery (2516 Douglas St.) for bagels and coffee. At this time everyone's name is put into a hat. Team captains are selected, the names are drawn from a hat randomly and each person is assigned to their team aka new band!

Generally we put together 4 bands for the show but there have been 5 in the past. Depends on how many people sign up and are accepted.

After each team/band is created they then go off to their assigned jam spaces to come up with a 30min. set to practice and perform later that night at Logan's. The only rule is that there are no covers allowed. It must be original material and it must fit within a 30 min. set.

That's it! It's super fun. Over the years we've had 100's of local musicians participate and it's always a blast. The Rock Lottery helps us raise money for our music programming so we can continue bring interesting, avante garde and experimental music to Victoria.

We are always looking for sponsors!
