Youth given Battle Of The Bands spotlight
Twisted Melon Battle Of the Bands is back with a new youth category for its ninth year this weekend – and promises to be its best-ever.
As always, it’s a non-profit event put on purely to promote unsigned acts and get them performing packed events and ultimately radio airplay and a performance at Lynn’s Festival Too, Europe’s biggest unticketed free festival.
Not only that, but finalists get to perform at a number of other great festivals across Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire.
Alongside the main battle of the bands is also run a solo/duo competition with the same great prize of a Festival Too slot.
New for 2019 there will be an Under-18s Battle Of The Bands event giving the younger generation the same great opportunity to perform at this summer’s Festival Too.
The format of the main Battle Of The Bands runs like this: heats consisting of four acts will run throughout March and April with each act performing a 30-minute set.
The winning act progresses to the semi-finals and receives airplay on KL.FM. The semis are split across two live shows as well as the regular KL.FM Semi-Final Show. Two acts then progress from each semi, plus the best third place act, to give a five-band final.
Finally, the winners perform the main stage on the final night of this summer’s Festival Too. There are also have slots for the runner-up as well as the solo/duo winner and under-18 winner.
Topping all this off is an amazing prize package for the winners including recording time, photo shoot, a brand design campaign with main sponsor ‘Rose Ave Design Co.’ and live sessions on KL.FM.

Round one (solo/duo) kicks it all off at The Dabbling Duck, Great Massingham, on Sunday, starting at 4pm.
