Battle of The Bands deadline approaching

Winner of the competition will get their song played on the radio

Deadline to enter the contest is Oct. 14.

Do you have a band that has a great sound but you can’t get noticed? Or you’re playing at small gigs but you need a shot at the big-time?

Band Fight II is taking place at Library Square Pub in Vancouver every Wednesday from Nov. 7-28, where competing bands duke it out for a grand prize of one professionally recorded song and a full radio promotion.

The winning band will have their song produced by AMP Records ($12,000 value) and The Fox 99.3 will play the song over the airwaves, further promoting the band.

Preliminary round-winners will also each get an opportunity for airplay or interviews on The Fox’s Indie Night in Canada and all artists competing in Band Fight will have the opportunity for exposure.

Band Fight is presented as an authentic boxing match, with a real boxing ring setup as the stage; ring card girls announcing ‘rounds’ (the next band), a tuxedo clad MC keeping the crowd laughing, and a live twitter feed keeping the crowd interacting, meanwhile a professional photographer captures the crowd getting into the spirit.

Four bands a night compete for three weeks of preliminary rounds and each night one winner is selected based on the judges scores and fan votes.

The winner moves on to the finale on Nov. 28. One lucky wild-card band also gets selected to compete in the finale based on the judges’ scores and fan votes.

The judging panel for Band Fight will be made up of local music industry professionals. This will give all the performing bands the chance to play for notable music industry professionals in Vancouver.

However, the deadline to enter your band is drawing near. Any local bands wanting to apply should visit or email for more information. The deadline to apply is Oct. 14 (Sunday), at midnight.
