After a hugely successful event last year, Horsham’s long running Battle of the Bands competition is back for 2016 and is now accepting entries through its website at www.horshambotb.co.uk

Judged by a panel of industry experts, this year’s BotB Festival Weekend will take place on Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th August in Horsham Park’s ‘Human Nature Garden’.

The final of the covers competition will take place on the Saturday afternoon with the final of the originals competition taking place in the evening. As a special treat, last year’s covers and originals winners, Catfish and Team New Band, will also perform while the judges make their final decisions.

The event will then come to a close on the Sunday afternoon with the final of the acoustic competition, also taking place in the Human Nature Garden, with last year’s winner Jodie Munday performing while the judges deliberate.

Prizes to be won include a professional music video and photo-shoot, studio time, an iTunes single release package and much more.

This year, the weekend will have a circus theme with workshops for kids, themed food and drink vendors and professional circus performers on site.

Co-organiser and local musician Jamie ‘Stan’ Stanley said: “Last year’s event was fantastic. We expect this year’s event to be even bigger and better. So if you’re in a band and fancy having a go, get your entries in now via the website. And if you love live music, put August 13th & 14th in your diary now!”

The Horsham BotB website will also once again host an online People’s Choice poll where fans can get involved, check out the bands that have entered and vote for their favourites.

Closing date for entries is the 1st July when the heats will be announced.
