2018 Emerging Artists

VCF is proud to announce two winners of our 2018 Emerging Artists Showcase: AV!VA and Dusk.

Due to an overwhelmingly positive response from concert-goers, we extended our victory to two acts – One winner of the Twitter Contest and another for Overall Votes. These two acts each received the “Emerging Artists Showcase Care Package,” which includes $1,000 in gear from Guitar Center.

Congratulations, AV!VA and Dusk!
