Registrations are now open for the 2021 Golden Plains Youth Battle of the Bands.

Council is calling young musicians aged 12 to 25 to enter the 2021 Golden Plains Youth Battle of the Bands competition to be held at the Bannockburn Cultural Centre on Friday 2 July. Musicians, bands, digital artists and soloists from across the Shire are encouraged to register and take the stage at Golden Plains Shire’s biggest free youth event!

Open to young people aged 12 to 25, the Battle of the Bands is a showcase of young up and coming artists, inclusive of all genres, with bands, soloists, duo performances and digital artists all welcome to register.

Performers will be battling it out for some great prizes, supplied by Music Workshop, with a panel of independent judges from the local music community judging performances.

The Battle of the Bands is an event organised for young people, by young people. The Golden Plains Youth Committee are organising the event, which is funded by the Victorian Government’s FReeZA program. The Committee is supported by Council’s Youth Development Team to plan, implement, and deliver all aspects of the event. Through this process, young people gain valuable event management experience and an insight into career pathways in the music and events industries. 

Mayor Cr Helena Kirby encourages young musicians and artists from across the Shire to take the opportunity to hit the stage and register as a performer.

“Battle of the Bands is an exciting opportunity for Golden Plains youth to showcase their talents in front of a large, supportive audience of their peers.

“The event provides young performers with a safe and inclusive space to gain valuable performance experience.

“Not only does Battle of the Bands highlight the emerging talent we have in Golden Plains, but as a youth-led event it also provides young people with important development opportunities within the music and events industries.”

Performers can register by contacting the Golden Plain Youth Development team at [email protected] or 5220 7111.
