Championing the unusual, the unorthodox and the unheard, Battle of the Bands is nonclassical’s annual emerging talent platform for early career performers and performer-composers.
Held every year, we invite between 6 and 8 acts a year – who chime with our ethos and are at the start of their career – to perform in an informal setting in front of a panel of industry experts and an encouraging audience. Past acts have showcased a range of different new music styles, and have been adjudicated by international performers, programmers, producers and composers.
