PFOVO — Stadium of Fire fans will have the opportunity to help select who will perform at this year’s event.
The Gigg Stadium of Fire Talent Competition, which takes place June 10 at 7:30 p.m., gives four music acts the chance to compete for a spot to perform on the same stage as Carrie Underwood and members of BYU TV’s comedy show “Studio C.”
Alex Boyé will host the event at the SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre, 699 S. State, Orem. The finalists, who were selected in an online contest that began in May, will perform along with the winners of the 2013 competition, We Are The Strike.
According to a news release, the four finalists are Belle Jewel, a singer-songwriter from Arizona; John Allred, an alternative and rock singer-songwriter from Provo; Mimi Knowles a soul funk artist from Maine; and The Show Ponies, an indie-folk group from Los Angeles.
“Thousands of entries were whittled to 256 by Freedom Festival and Gigg judges. The final four were chosen by both official judges and fan votes,” according to a news release.
Introduction videos for each of the finalists are available online at freedomfestival.org/event/stadium-of-fire-talent-competition.
Tickets for the competition are $4 per person or $20 for groups of five to eight people and are available online at store.gigg.com/event-tickets.html.
The Stadium of Fire will take place July 4, 8 p.m., at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo. Tickets are $29-$175 and are available by phone at 801-422-2981 or online at freedomfestival.org.
