Calling all of Manchester’s budding musical troupes, Firestone Battle of the Bands is returning for a third year, bigger and better than ever. We want to see some local bands reach the final, taking home some fantastic prizes in the process. Up for grabs is over £2000 worth of Orange Amps backline, as well as £1500 worth of studio time and entering couldn’t be easier; just fill out a short form and submit a track here.

To enter, you’ll need to provide Firestone with your name, contact details, band/artist bio and a link to music on SoundCloud, YouTube, Facebook, or wherever your best music can be found! Entry closes on Sunday 22nd October 2017. Judges (Wolf Alice bassist Theo Ellis, Orange Amplification and PMT) will then hand-pick eight artists, before putting the shortlisted acts to a public vote. Three final acts will go through to the finals at Arena Birmingham. Wait are you waiting for?!
