The Battle of the Bands is an annual music competition that gives young people an opportunity to perform and gain exposure in a safe and supportive environment.
The competition is open to bands, soloists and duos in any style of music including acoustic acts, hip hop and electronic, originals or covers.
The winner of the 2019 Battle of the Bands takes home a generous $500 to put towards recording time, new equipment or instruments and will be put on a short list of artists for future Freeza events.
