Abby Pennington in the solo category; Matthew Finer, Kayden Brogden-Willis, Emilia Scott and Aries Pouto “The Crystallizers”; and Izzy Logan, Robbie Saysell and Orlando Davidson (Pātea Area School) “Ungoliant”. Ungoliant placed 1st out of 13 bands. Izzy Logan was awarded a musicianship award and Emila Scott won best vocalist. Ungoliant will find out this week if they are one of the Top 30 bands in NZ, with a chance to make the top 10 and play live at the National final.
