Before we're all overwhelmed with an avalanche of new music in the new year, there's still a bit of time to reflect on how many great songs came out in 2021.
This weekend, the Best of 2021 Gauntlet will determine the greatest of them all, and you can vote for the last ones in!
Starting Friday, Jan. 7th at 4 p.m. PT and continuing at 2 p.m. PT on Saturday, the 40 best songs of the year will go head-to-head in The Gauntlet, live on KNOTFEST's Official Twitch Channel, hosted by Jon "StayPuft" Mallow. The winners will be decided by you in the chat. Four of those 40 will move to the final round.
Finally, on Sunday at 12pm PT, the final 10 songs voted into the tournament by the KNOTFEST audience will slug it out for a chance at the Championship Bracket. In the final round, the weekend's winners will join previous Gauntlet winners — Emma Ruth Rundle, Frontierer, Employed to Serve and Amenra — for all the marbles.
Voting is open now through Sunday! Choose between 50 songs, with the top 10 making it in for Sunday's bracket.
