Manitoba Live Music Event

cover challenge

Saturday, Aug 25, 2018 at 7:30pm
The Cube
133 Albert Street, Old Market Square, Winnipeg, MB, Canada
The Purple Room


On Saturday, August 25, solo artists, duos, and full bands will take part in a cover song challenge at the Cube stage in Old Market Square! Performers will be receiving 2 songs to learn, with the goal of putting their own unique twists on classic rock, folk, pop, soul, and country tunes. 

With a short time to learn the songs, will performers go for authentic recreations or try to bring something completely new to songs that may be out of their comfort zones?

Guest judges will pick their top 3 acts in this friendly competition, who will receive trophies honouring their achievements. 

Those interested in participating, please message the Purple Room on Facebook or send an email to so we can assign your songs and add you to the line-up! All skill levels and styles welcome.

As with all our events at the Cube in 2018, this show is sponsored by our friends at Smoke's Poutinerie Winnipeg and Depressed rabbits drawn while caffeinated!
