BATTLE OF THE BANDS – 2017 National Championship
The BOTB 2017 events will commence on 20th and 23rd September in Auckland and Hamilton, followed by nationwide events running through October & November with the National Finals in mid-December.
Registration is open now at: http://www.battleofthebands.co.nz
The winning band will again TOUR EUROPE on the STOKE ROLLING CIRCUS tour; this time on the following year’s Stoke Rolling Circus in August 2018. This allows a longer lead time for the band to record their single, initiate their global radio promotion campaign with MUSIK and FILM and prepare for the Europe Tour.
Prizes will again include recording time, musical instrument prizes, global radio promotion and the tour of Europe.
