Battle of the School Bands
Established in 2009, Battle of the School Bands is a band competition for Northern Territory schools, which sees the winners play alongside international acts at the annual BASSINTHEGRASS music festival in Darwin.
The Battle of the School Bands is open to middle and senior students (Years 7-12) enrolled in government and non-government schools. Students can enter as a part of a band, duo or soloist.
Prizes this year include recording time, musical gear and vouchers from Cool Bananas.
To enter the competition you must complete an expression of interest form and be eligible to perform at one of the school heats held in late March / early April. You and your band or duo will perform two original songs at your allocated school heat for the opportunity to earn a place in the final, held on Friday 12 April at The Big Gig - National Youth week Concert. If you are from a remote school and cannot attend a school heat you can send a DVD of your performance. See the How to enter page for more details.
Entries close on Friday March 15 at 5pm.
