Every year local qualifying heats and national finals take place in participating countries around the world, with the winners of these going forward to the world final. The winning UK band will fly to the world finals and stay in a luxury hotel. Last year's UK winners, Scarlletta, were flown to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to take part in the world finals which were held at KL Live. This year's world final location is yet to be revealed, but will attract over 5000 people.



Here's what selected artists will get:



  • Artists can sell their merchandise and keep 100% of the profits.

  • A sound system will be provided at the venues, but artists are responsible for bringing their own instruments and any additional equipment.


Battles will be held throughout the summer 2011 at various venues. Each show will consist of 8-16 bands, who each get to play 2 songs. There are sixteen places in each regional final. The winning band from each final will then perform at the National Final in London. The first regional final will take place at the end of July. The UK winners will be announced on the 6th of November at the National Finals.


Rules and Regulations:


  • Only bands from the UK are eligible for this opportunity.

  • All music must be original songs.

  • The battles do not allow backing tracks.

  • Selected artists will have to pay a 20 euros registration fee, and this fee will be waived for the top 3 Sonicbids artists.
