Battle Of The Bands 2011
Want to play at Merthyr Rock? Here's your chance!
This year, the Wales-wide CLIC Battle Of The Bands competition is in conjunction with Merthyr Rock, the new music festival featuring The Blackout and Ocean Colour Scene which takes place on Sat 3 and Sun 4 September 2011 in Cyfartha Park, Merthyr Tydfil.
Enter and share a stage with your heroes by winning the Merthyr Rock / CLIC Battle Of The Bands.
The winning band will open the main stage at Merthyr Rock on Saturday 3 September. Two runners-up will play the second stage, one on Saturday, one on Sunday. We will be holding regional heats around Wales at the end of July, with the grand final in Cardiff in August.
The heats are as follows:
Bridgend Hobos - Fri 22 July

Pop Factory, Porth - Sat 30 July
Galeri Caernarfon - Date TBC
Battle Of The Bands final:

The battle is open to all music acts, not just guitar-orientated music, so if you're an MC, keyboard wizard, decks trickster or human beatbox, we want you to enter.
