The 8 Finalists - 

26th Avenue
“We are full of energy and talent and always put on a show that is next to none, involving the audience and making everyone go home singing and smiling and remembering our name - 26TH AVENUE”

The Start
“We are a young band with a real passion for music and work hard rehearsing we have played music festivals and battle of the bands and are keen to gain more experience, especially where no one will shout at us for making noise”

Anything But
“For fans of Biffy Clyro, Arctic Monkeys and Muse: Anything But bring their catchy foot stomping hooks and energy, into a world of their own.”

The V8s
“We have been playing for 1 year as a three-man group and in this time have written 6 songs with another 3 in the process of being written. We plan on putting together a large set list including originals and covers.”

“Our main drive is ultimately to entertain ourselves and our crowd and fans. The most important thing for us is to stick together like family and keep creating beautiful, noisy and aggressive Rock N’ Roll and have fun on stage”

Code Ascending  
“3 genetic brothers from Crawley who like to make a lot of noise. Wowing audiences with their emmence wall of sound.”

The Rattlebacks
