Scene Magazine is an independent monthly publication that empowers the local Fort Collins music Eco-system with journalistic support. The Scene has evolved with Northern Colorado Music. They still exist in print; despite that, some say it is extinct, in addition to a digital version online.
The Competition is in its 3rd year of existence, staged, so all ten bands go head to head for 20 minutes each. Judges vote for the winners who are announced at the end of the evening.
Competing Bands included:
