Want to help find Canada’s best new musical act? Vote now to decide the regional champions!


CBC Music and CBC Radio One are looking for Canada's best new artist, and we want your help. Searchlight is a competition that connects artists with fans in their community and across the country. Vote for your favourite bands in your region and across the country. You can vote for three acts per region per day, to decide which acts make it to the regional finals. It's all leading to a grand prize, including $20,000 worth of music equipment from Yamaha Canada Music, a professional recording with CBC Music, and a spot on the bill with Tegan and Sara, and Spoon at the CBCMusic.ca Festival in Vancouver.

Vote now, and come back to explore more music and vote for your favourites every day! Voting makes you eligible for your own prizes from Yamaha Canada Music.

For details on the voting rounds and everything else, check out the rules and regulations. This round of voting ends Monday, April 21, at 3 p.m. ET.
