Kihncert Cover Contest Details & Rules:

The Kihncert Cover Contest is a way for fans to show their Kihncert spirit! Enter to win prizes ranging from mini-posters to a guitar autographed by all of the bands playing at this years Kihncert! All you need to do is record a video of yourself covering a song by one of the bands playing on the Kihncert Main Stage, upload the video to Youtube, then post the video on the Kihncert Facebook page!

No need to stick to the standard acoustic guitar cover(unless you really want to), get creative! We want to see your musical talent and creativity. Got a cover of Greg Kihn’s “Jeopardy” that you play on the piano? Show us what you’ve got! Enter to see if you have what it takes to win that grand prize!


-Must be a fan of the Kihncert Facebook page. Meaning click the “Like” button!

-Only one entry per person(or group). Make it count!

-No groups larger than 2 people.

-You must cover a song from any of the Main Stage Artists!

-No electronic versions of covers(you or your partner in crime must play an instrument in the video), no playing along to the original song(just wear headphones if you need to).

-No spamming the Kihncert Fb page! Post your link one time only to enter the contest! You can share the video as many times as you want on your personal page or your friends page, just not the Kihncert page! AUTOMATIC DISQUALIFICATION IF VIOLATED!

-Do not use an automatic viewing site to increase views on your video! If your video goes viral and gets 100,000 views over night we will know and be able to tell the difference between a real viral video and someone who is cheating using an automatic viewing site! AUTOMATIC DISQUALIFICATION IF VIOLATED!

-No bad-mouthing or trolling each others videos! This is a fun competition and we should encourage creativity in each other, not discourage it! IF A PARTICIPANT VIOLATES THIS RULE AN AUTOMATIC DISQUALIFICATION IS ONLY THE BEGINNING!

-You must enter the same day that you upload your video to youtube! No old videos of songs you’ve already covered and uploaded! If you’ve done a cover of any of these songs we’re sure you can do it again!


Winners are determined by how popular the video is! Videos with the most Views and Likes are our winners. That simple!
