Sound Off!

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


An annual event since 2001, Museum of Pop Culture’s Sound Off! supports the all-ages scene by giving artists an opportunity to showcase original music, launch their music careers, and connect with the larger artistic community.

Now in its 17th year, Sound Off! has paved the way for some amazing bands and artists including The Lonely Forest, Dyme Def, Sol, Kithkin, Schoolyard Heroes, Tomten, Brite Futures, as well as members of Beat Connection, Macklemore, Cumulus, Oberhofer, La Luz, Kairos and more. From Seattle and Portland to Vancouver and Boise, groups or solo musicians playing all genres of music are encouraged to submit original material for consideration.

Three semifinal rounds of Sound Off! concerts will take place Fridays, February 9, 15, and 23 (Semifinals), culminating in an electrifying finals show in MoPOP's Sky Church on Saturday, March 3, 2017.

Sound Off! participants make off with a slew of awesome prizes such as gear, radio airplay, festival performances, professional photoshoots, and media attention.
