The Tasmanian State Rock Challenge Champions

​The Tasmanian State Rock Challenge has been running for over twenty years growing out of an annual event conducted in Launceston by Barrats music. Junction Arts Festival has invited the winners of this annual event as well as an act scouted by Junction Arts Festival and claimed as our favourite.

The Rock Challenge is currently based in Launceston and is open to all high schools and colleges public and private throughout the state.

It has always been and continues to be very popular at both the school and college levels with the winners of this years event achieving a much sought after slot at the 2013 Breath of Life Festival.

Last years college winners were Horehound who are going on to bigger and better things with every passing week and are even featured in Junction Arts Festival’s Saturday night Junc Room line up. Many past performers are now professional players and are based in many parts of Australia and some overseas.

Get to the Junc Room to see Tasmania’s next big thing.
