Battle of the Bands

Sponsorship & Marketing

Event Profile

Indy’s Battle of the Bands came back in a big way in 2020 and the audience responded.  72  bands competed for the shot at the ultimate grand prize – $10,000 and a touring van.  Every Wednesday night for 16 weeks, preliminary rounds packed the house at HI-FI for a diverse showcase of the best of the best Indiana has to offer. The finale, held at The Vogue in Broad Ripple, delivered an incredible lineup of finalists to a sold out crowd.  Competition aside, the event united the local music community and created a weekly “stomping” grounds that spawned collaboration, side projects and new friends. The mismatch of genres, courtesy of a blind draw, gave spectators a diverse lineup of music, allowing a full showcase of the best local music talent.  

After a pandemic hiatus, plans are in the works for Battle of the Bands in 2022-23.  Event dates and submission details will be announced in the coming weeks.
