A VARIETY of music will lift the Limestone Coast Pantry’s roof on Sunday as South East musicians compete in this year’s Battle of the Bands.
Seven bands across a diverse range of genres will take the stage, showcasing everything from indie tunes to punk rock, pop-style covers and much more.
Event organiser Bronte Ellard said she hoped this year’s change of scenery would bring a new and family-friendly environment.
“We have made some large choices this year to try and get the event out there,” she said.
“A lot of fantastic music is now emerging so it is great to see these bands have a place to play.
“I have seen a bunch of talent come through the doors in the last couple of years so I am excited for what we will see this year.”
X Factor finalist Louise Adams and Obsidians Curse band members Kane Stuckey and Brad Close will judge the event.
Ms Ellard said she was grateful for the sponsorship the event has received.
“It is great to see the community come together to support a community event,” she said.
“Compared to the last few years, this year we have a mixture of genres instead of just heavy punk-influenced music.
“The event tends to go with the trend of what bands are doing but we hope to see something different every year.”
Ms Ellard encourages the public to experience the music for themselves and support emerging talent in the region.
“We are hoping for a full-house as last year having around 200 people come through the door.
“I think we will top this from the feedback we have already received.”
Starting at 2pm, street food and drinks will be available for purchase with ticket pre-sales available at Dale Cleves Music, Limestone Coast Pantry, 5GTR and participating acts for $8 or $10 at the door.
