The successful Battle of the Bands competition is fast approaching at The Prince Bar, Athlone.
Last year’s competition saw Sligo-based band The Quakers battle their way through the heats to the grand final where a nail-biting competition on the night resulted in them taking the top prize.
Due to the success of last year’s competition, Battle of the Bands at The Prince will now be an annual competition.
This year’s competition will see a mix of local bands as well as some from the south and west of Ireland, so it will be a very exciting and tough competition ahead! In association with Heineken, Golden Discs, and Lakeland Studios (to name a few ), the competition invites and encourages bands from all music backgrounds and genres to compete for an enticing overall winners package of €8,000.
Bands will be judged based on a number of different criteria - musical performance, stage presence, originality, and offers bands the opportunity to showcase original music in Athlone’s most popular weekend live music venue.
The first heat will commence on February 27 at 10pm. Battle of the Bands proves to be a great night out for all, and with just a couple of spots left for the heats this really is the last chance to enter one of the biggest battle of the bands competitions in the Midlands!
