Orange partners with Firestone’s Battle of the Bands
Orange has joined forces with Firestone for its next Battle of the Bands competition, now entering a third year.
Battle of the Bands, which launched on Friday 29th September, will see eight shortlisted acts eventually being selected after an October 22 closing date. The competition will then be opened out to an online public vote from November 13 to 23, with the top three going forward as the finalists to play on the Firestone Stage in the pre-show entertainment area on the Arena Birmingham concourse at a later date. An overall winner will then be announced in front of the biggest crowd they will have played to, at the famous indoor venue.
More than £2,000 worth of Orange amplification equipment will be up for grabs for the winning band, not to mention studio time worth around £1,500 and support towards the creation of a bespoke EP album.
Orange Amplification, returning partner Professional Music Technology (PMT) and Firestone will also have the responsibility of judging the entries and agreeing on eight shortlisted acts.
Orange’s involvement will be headed by endorser Theo Ellis of UK band Wolf Alice, who says: ‘With small gig venues closing and bedroom music become increasingly accessible, Firestone’s Battle of the Bands is a cool opportunity for musicians to make and put their music out there to be physically heard. Music fans get to hear fresh new bands, that discovery is exciting for everyone involved in music and it’s great it’s being promoted here.’
Battle of the Bands can now be entered at battleofthebands.firestone.eu
