90.7 WXIN

Rock Hunt

The WXIN Rock Hunt is Rhode Island's premier battle of the bands competition, featuring 16 local acts looking to make it big. WXIN is proud to have Rhode Island's original and best Rock Hunt, a tradition WXIN has maintained since the early 1980s at the iconic Living Room, which lives on today at Firehouse 13. With no commercialization, easy entry rules and an emphasis on promoting the locally based, up-and-coming artists that we proudly play on our radio station 365 days a year, the WXIN Rock Hunt is purely about the music.
