Perhaps one of the bands competing in this year’s Battle of the Bands could become music’s next big thing. Last year’s Battle of the Bands winner FLAXXON have since gone on to record their first EP.
There are others who have gone on to make their name locally, if only for a brief time in the spotlight – take ‘13 Steps to Nowhere’ for example. If only they had taken that 14th step.
The search is on for Mitchell Shire’s next up-and-coming music stars, with applications now open for Volume’s Battle of the Bands competition. The competition is open to bands or artists that live, work or study in Mitchell Shire.
A minimum of half the band members must be 21 years of age or under when the application is submitted, and no members can be over 25 or younger than 12.
Participants will take to the stage to compete for the Battle of the Bands title at Hadfield Park in Wallan from 12pm to 4pm on July 22
Applications are open until 5pm on Monday, July 3. Entry is free but participants must cover all travel and accommodation costs.
