This year’s Battle of the Bands will take place on Friday 1 July 2016 at The Spa, Bridlington.
Please note that this competition is for school based bands and you must consult your Head of Music before entering the competition.
Bands will be invited to attend a thirty minute sound-check session between 1:30 and 6:00pm on the day. Musicians will work with a professional sound engineer and have chance to perfect their sound on the famous stage! This session will finish at 6:30pm; the ‘Battle’ will start at 7pm.
Please note that the Schools' Music Service is not responsible for transport and cannot be considered as staff – you must organise your attendance at the event through your school’s Head of Music.
There are two local and influential judges who will be looking for band performance skills such as tuning, balance, rhythmical accuracy, style, interpretation, ensemble skills, communication and composition. Each band will be awarded either a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award with the exception of the winning band who will receive a winner’s award and a recording session at the Hexagon Music Centre in Beverley.
Bands will be required to perform two songs; one cover in their own style and one original composition. This may change depending upon the number of applications we receive. Each school can only enter one band.
Tickets will be available via the Spa Box office at a cost of £5 per adult and £1 per student.
