The KISS Kruise Soundcheck

How It Works

Round 1

The Top 10 semi-finalists will be voted on by guests booked on The KISS Kruise X, as well as your fans, to determine the Top 5 acts. Voting will take place in April 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 May.

Early June: 10 semi-finalists, chosen by a panel of The KISS Kruise experts at Sixthman, will be notified to move on to the voting round. Public announcement will be coordinated soon thereafter.
