Calling all bands! How would you like to be part of the iconic WECT Sounds of Summer Concert Series this year?

The WECT Sounds of Summer Concert Series has been one of the longest running and most successful WECT Promotions ever.

For the past 23 years, we have been celebrating the summer months with free concerts for the public and they just keep getting bigger!

Average attendance is estimated at 800 people with more than 1,000 at some of the concerts in 2018.

Concertgoers are able to enjoy great music, tasty food, and fantastic give-a-ways.

We’re looking for experienced/professional musicians and bands to apply to participate. Typically the audience likes to hear the bands play primarily popular cover songs from a variety of genres.

The concert dates are:

  • June 14
  • June 21
  • June 28
  • July 11
  • July 18
  • July 25

The concerts are in the evenings from 6:30-8 p.m. Each band that is booked must arrive at 5 p.m. for sound checks. All concerts will be held at Wrightsville Beach Park. SoundWave Audio will be providing concert production services as they have in years past.
