The 10 finalists will be featured on the website where fans can vote them into the top three. The selected three Malaysian acts will be awarded RM15,000 each to fund their musical ambitions. They will then be paired with acclaimed Asian acts: Singaporean pop band The Sam Willows, Hong Kong’s punk pop band ToNick or Malaysia’s very own Darren Ashley as well as three established visual artists: Donald Abraham, Kenji Chai and Flex to produce an original Tiger Jams track and music video each. They will also get to host a gig each, and prior to the big event, a mystery international band will personally handpick one to collaborate on a remix
that will be performed at the finale.
