Battle of the Bands 2014 - Our Tenth Year
Hello everyone and welcome to the 2014 season of the Okehampton Battle of the Bands. This is our tenth anniversary year and so we are determined that this is going to a really good year.
You already know that at BotB towers we are starting to plan and put together both the Battle of the Bands competition and the Party in the Park final. Once again we thought that we would try to keep you updated with some regular blogs, so here goes with the first of 2014.
First off, entries for 2014 are being accepted from bands sarting the 1st March, so make your way to the applications section and get your application in. It is really easy and the deposit is refundable. We would really like to see applications from ALL music genres.
Also, we'd like to encourage you to look around our website and join in on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Already this year we have teamed up with Radio Devon and are working with Matt Woodley and James Santer to promote BBC Introducing which is a great way to get your music heard by industry professionals.
Once again we have secured brilliant prizes for our BotB finalists, a recording package from our good friends at Alive Music Studio, billing at Chagstock 2015, stage banners from SWH Signs and vouchers from Project Music.
Our sponsors for 2014 have already pledged their support, so a massive thank you to Okehampton Town Council, Okehampton United Charities, Balsdons Vehicle Services, Steven's Estate Agents and The Plymouth Inn.
What else have we got in store for 2014? Andrei Burton will be back at the Party in the Park, entertaining with his amazing mountain bike exhibition riding and our headline act for this year is Live Wire - The AC/DC show.
All in all we are looking forward to an amazing BotB season. Put Saturday the 2nd of August into your diary now and we will post another blog in April.
