A new Battle of the Bands competition is being held in York for young musicians.

It’s organised by York City Supporters’ Trust, with the event taking place at the Fulford Arms on Friday 11 October.

Organisers said:

  • The event is designed to showcase young bands in the York area. It’s a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of your band and help the trust raise some funds.

    Sound equipment and lighting will be provided, so bands just need to bring their instruments. Some amazing prizes and a high-profile judging panel will be announced soon.

Get involved

At this stage the trust is calling on any local bands aged 18-24 to submit their details and a demo. The judging panel will review all entries and we will contact successful bands in May.

Tickets for the October event will go on sale in May / June. They will be £7 in advance, although participating bands will receive a special discount code for friends and family at just £5 each.
