Battle Of The Bands

Applications Still Open for The Hawths First Battle of the Bands Competition

We are now on the hunt to find the best musical talent around to battle it out on our Main Stage in front of a live standing audience on Saturday 29 June.

This opportunity to work with professional technicians and perform with first-class sound and lighting equipment is something you won’t want to miss. 

A panel of music industry professionals will judge the competition and determine the overall winner. There will also be an opportunity for a people’s choice vote which means it’s down to you to not only win over the judges but the audience members too. 

Prizes for the Winning band; £500 prize money PLUS A day recording and mixing in a professional studio AND the opportunity to perform again at High-street live as part of the Crawley Festival. 


If you think you have what it takes, then here's what you need to do...

Fill out the application form (located below) and attach a video of your band performing at least two songs, can be either covers or originals. 

If your band is successful you will be notified via email before the 1st May and asked to come into the venue to discuss your set.

Finally, it will be your chance to wow the judges live on our mainstage on Saturday 29 June as you perform live for your chance to win the title of Battle of the Bands Champion 2019!
