Devon Secondary Schools Battle of the Bands


3 Regional Providers Join Together to Launch Devon-Wide Battle of the Bands

A Devon-wide Battle of the Bands has launched today, calling for young musicians at secondary schools up to the age of 18 to sign up to join the contest. There are prizes including free recording, mixing and mastering a song for release on streaming platforms for the first, second and third prizes. Radio exposure and performance slots at music festivals in the South West are also up for grabs for contestants who impress the judges.

This brings together existing contests that have run in recent years in North, South, East and West Devon. Separately, each of the 4 contests have been a huge success, with 50 applicants in East Devon alone last year.

The providers in each area have been brought together by the Devon & Torbay Music Education Hub, the Music In Devon Initiative and Devon production company R&K Systems. The organisers hope that by expanding the contest by bringing all four providers together, that it will attract an even great number of young musicians and actively encourage them to get involved in the south west music ecosystem.

Four heats will be run at participating schools in each of the regions in early to mid-June

- South Devon; Plympton Academy (Plymouth) Monday 17th June
- West Devon; Coombeshead Academy (Newton Abbot) Tuesday 18th June
- East Devon; Cranbrook Education Campus (Cranbrook) Wednesday 19th June
- North Devon; Petroc College (Barnstaple) Thursday 20th June

The winners of each heat will battle it out at the final at Bomba in Exeter.
