Young Bands, Audiences, Judges and Sponsors – a chance for everyone to get involved in the growth and development of our region’s music at Battle of the Bands!

If you’re a young band under-18, based in the Far North from Whangarei up to Cape Reinga, you’re eligible to enter. Or if you haven’t got a band together yet, there’s plenty of time! We’ll need two songs – an 8 minute performance – of originals, covers or both, and there will be cash prizes for the winners. Places are limited, and on a first-come, first-served basis.

Check out The Rules and fill out The Form on the website. Then get your band ready to rock the stage!

Get geared up to watch some great young bands on stage at the Turner Centre. And you get to vote on the night in the People’s Choice awards. Bring your friends and make some noise! Who knows, you could be watching world-famous music stars of the future – something to tell your grandchildren! All we ask in return is a suggested koha of $5 for adults, and under 16s are free.

Fancy being a Judge for the night? – if you’d like to be on our panel of judges, email us on and let us know why we should choose you. You must have music industry experience, an appreciation of musical ability, and like a wide range of music. It’s a difficult job, but someone’s got to do it!

Fancy sponsoring a prize? – please contact us at We’d love to hear from you. In return, we’ll promote your company and you can put up advertising banners at the event and present the prize!
