Top THREE performers will have a brief introduction and perform two songs each on Saturday July 9th, at the ByronFest Constellation Stage.

Each Winner will be awarded a prize: 1st - $300, 2nd- $200 and 3rd - $100!!

We are so excited to see all the talent!! 



Each participant will receive a ByronFest goodie bag including a ByronFest wristband and the winner of each week will receive a Mega Pass! (unlimited rides all weekend and unlimited entry to festival grounds.)  If a participant loses one week they are eligible to sign up for ONE of the following weeks.  They may enter into ByronFest Idol two times.  If they lose BOTH times, they will not be allowed to sign up a third time.
