About

Okehampton Battle of the Bands is the South West's premier Battle of the Bands competition boasting a 13 year pedigree. We welcome applications from acts of all ages and covering all musical genres. There are only two main rules - no signed acts and no tribute bands and every year the event gets bigger and better as it reaches a wider audience.

The competition is spread over three heats plus our Party in the Park finale. Each band plays a 20 minute set with five bands making it through to the final.

All prizes are donated and the event is funded by grant aid, sponsorship and donations. There are no application fees just a £20 returnable deposit plus a £5 administration fee, please see the application process for further details.

Entry to our events is free, after all every band needs an audience to play to, however we hope you will be generous and give us donations on the door.

A licensed bar is available at all of our Heats and at The Party in the Park finale there will be a licensed bar, food and other attractions.

Eighteen acts, five finalists and one winner - Okehampton Battle of the Bands, be there and be part of it !

The Okehampton Battle of the Bands is a not for profit organisation relying on grant aid, sponsorship and donations.
