The Five Acre Shaker is a 37-acre weekend of music and a battle of the bands the Battle is held in May, not at the Shaker, this gives the winner time to prepare for the Shaker.
The Port Alberni Battle of the Bands invites bands and solo acts, under the age of 25 to sign up for the contest. The prize money is great but even better is the exposure for budding artists.
