Battle of the Bands 2014

Applications for the OUSA Battle of the Bands have now closed! We will pop up the list of bands competing in each heat as soon as possible!

Last year the judges certainly had a tough job on their hands with such a high calibre of acts competing. You can expect the same in 2014. Bands will compete across four heats and a final during May (NZ Music Month) to win the coveted spot as the OUSA Battle of the Bands Champion.
