The Rock Boat Soundcheck

Sixthman Soundcheck is the chance of a lifetime. We’re looking for 3 awesome acts to join us on The Rock Boat XXI sailing November 7-12, 2021! Do you have what it takes?

How It Works

Round 1

The Top 10 semi-finalists will be voted on by guests booked on The Rock Boat XXI, as well as your fans, to determine the Top 5 acts. Voting will take place in late March and will be hosted here on this page. Our booked guest votes will be weighted during the first round decisions, regardless of the overall total number of voters.

Round 2

The Top 5 acts will be narrowed down to 3 Soundcheck winners by our booked guests in April.


Thursday, March 4th at 11:59pm ET: Artist deadline to complete the submission form below.

Mid-Late March: 10 semi-finalists, chosen by a panel of TRB experts at Sixthman, will be notified to move on to the voting round. Public announcement will be coordinated soon thereafter.

Early-Mid April:  5 finalists, chosen by your fans and our booked guests, will be notified and move to the next round of voting where booked guests will select the final 3 winners.

Late April: The 3 Soundcheck winners will be notified and secured. Public announcement will be coordinated soon thereafter.
