Local band Collins Class who made it into the Australasian Final for the 2011 Global Battle of the Bands

Local bands who are looking for a head start in their music career, and a chance to play on the world stage, will get their opportunity when the Global Battle of the Bands heads to the Gold Coast and Tweed.

Global Battle of the Bands (GBOB) is a huge international event with over 30 countries involved. The first prize is worth US$100,000 and gives the winners the title of ‘Best New Band in the World’!

GBOB is looking for the next Devolved, Operator Please or Sunk Lotto to continue the area’s history of producing top international acts. Great original bands that have not yet received the recognition they deserve now have the chance to make it big.

The Gold Coast/Tweed Heat will be held at the South Tweed Sports Club on Friday June 15 from 8pm. It will be a wicked event that should not be missed! Bands wanting to take part need to contact organisers now by emailing [email protected] or calling 02 9519 3978.

For more information about GBOB visit: www.gbob.com.
