Turn It Up Band Competition

The Carlsbad Turn It Up showcases and develops emerging musical talent in San Diego County. Through a musical competition with great prizes, the program offers invaluable resources for emerging local musicians to further develop their business acumen and artistry to share it with the community.

Turn It Up is presented by the City of Carlsbad’s Library & Cultural Arts Department, in partnership with MiraCosta College and Museum of Making Music and in conjunction with TGIF Concerts in the Parks.
