The OUSA Battle of the Bands presented by Radio One and NZ on Air is an annual contest that takes place every May, pitting the best local up-and-coming bands against one another over a series of sweaty, riff-filled nights.

THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE! The first prize package includes a recording package, T-shirt printing, and some juicy cash furnished by the one and only OUSA! Plus, there are some sweet prizes for second and third place.

May is the month of music! The Battle of the Bands heats are every Friday in May at Re:Fuel, and entry is only $2 to see the talent is being turned out.

Two bands will be selected from each heat to compete at the BOTBs final on Saturday 23rd of May, a night you won’t want to miss!
