Battle of the Bands

How would you like to play a music festival alongside the likes of The Hoosiers and Lucy Spraggan?

Oakwell Festival is at Oakwell Hall, Birstall, on Saturday July 12th and Kirklees College is one of the sponsors.

We’re looking for a college band to play a 25-30 minute set on the Robert Watts marquee stage – and will be holding a Battle of the Bands contest at Highfields Centre, Huddersfield, on June 18th from 4pm to find our act.

Any bands can take part as long as you all study at Kirklees College. You will need around 7 or 8 songs if you are picked – and we’ll need to hear 2 or 3 at the audition.

Although you can include a couple of covers, we’d prefer mainly your own material. You also need to perform with LIVE music – no backing tracks! And it is a family event – so NO explicit lyrics!

To enter, please email ledwards@kirkleescollege.ac.uk ASAP.
