After a successful reboot last year, Horsham’s long-running Battle of the Bands is back for 2015 and is now accepting entries through it’s website.

Judged by a panel of industry professionals, the event takes place on Saturday and Sunday, August 8 and 9, in Horsham Park’s Human Nature Garden.

The final of the covers competition takes place on Saturday afternoon and the final of the originals competition takes place in the evening. As a special treat, last year’s originals winner Sonic Deluxe will perform while the judges make their decision.

The 2015 event will come to a close on the Sunday evening with the final of the acoustic competition, also taking place in the Human Nature Garden.

Prizes include a professional music video and photoshoot, studio time, an iTunes single release package and much more.

Co-organiser and former BotB winner Matt Andrews said: “Changing the venue, format and date of BotB last year was a huge gamble but it certainly paid off. The event was fantastic, all entrants played their socks off and the winners thoroughly deserved their place in Horsham music history. We expect this year’s event to be even bigger and better. So if you’re in a band, get your entries in now via the website. And if you love live music, put August 8 and 9 in your diary now!”

This year, for the first time, the Horsham BotB website will host a People’s Choice poll online where fans can get involved and check out the bands that have entered. It will also act as a hub for entrants to advertise themselves and to receive up-to-date information about the competition. Closing date for entries will be July 1 when heats will be announced.
