Fight for the Light is a new, unique music competition designed for bands to compete for a spot to perform at the yearly Huntington Lighthouse Music Festival held on Labor Day Weekend each year. The goal of Fight for the Light is to find an outstanding band, or performers… newcomers or veterans…raw or polished – the “gem” that needs to be discovered, to add to our lineup at the 2015 MusicFest.

Conceived of and produced by the team who brings you the Huntington Lighthouse Music Festival, Fight for the Light is a way to introduce the area Maritime community to new artists and to find a band or performer that complements our current Lineup.

From the entries, 8 bands will be chosen to perform in the contest. The winner of the contest will be awarded the opportunity to perform in one of the time slots of the 2015 Music Festival.

The contest will be held on Sunday, May 17 at the Nautical Market and Fair at Mill Dam Park in Huntington during Safe Boating Week. The contest is presented by the Greater Huntington Council of Yacht & Boating Clubs along with the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society.
