Battle of the Bands

Loudoun Battle of the Bands provides a safe venue for middle and high school bands across the county and allows them to perform in front of their peers and compete for a chance to win cash ($) prizes. Each year, four battles take place – from January to April – with the top prize of $500 awarded at the final battle.

Every year, Loudon’s best youth bands and performers compete in 3 battles, where the winners of those battles move up and compete for cash ($) prizes in one last battle. More than $900 is awarded to the top-performing bands (1st Place, 2nd Place, Fan Favorite) at the final battle. First place wins $500! More prizes include: half a day of studio time, private lessons with professional songwriters, and much more!
