Battle of the Bands rocked Kyneton Town Hall on Friday 29 July 2022.
- Junkyard Wizards
- The Mods
- The Seventh Circle
- The Trentham Trio
- Sack of Flour
- The Ivy Walkers
The event, which was hosted by Council’s Music in The Sticks (MITS) crew, saw around 300 people flock to the town hall, providing participants the ultimate opportunity to refine their skills in performing, live audio, lighting and video, and event management in front of an eager crowd.
The competition was open to young people aged 12–25 years in the Macedon Ranges including solo artists, duos and bands.
Two awards were up for grabs on the night including the Judges Prize and the People’s Choice Prize. The judging panel consisted of two community members from the local music scene, a young person and a representative from Council.
Congratulations to winners Junkyard Wizards, who took home the Judges Prize and received a merchandise pack valued at $500 to help support the promotion of their music.
The Mods won the People’s Choice Award by drawing the largest audience and took home a $200 voucher for Manny’s/Store DJ, a leading music retailer in Australia.
