GBOB South Tweed Sports Club Friday Global Battle of the Bands is looking for the best bands the Gold Coast has to offer and this week the Gold Coast/Tweed Heat is on.
The event gives bands a fantastic opportunity to make it big in Australia and overseas. With more than 30 countries involved, the event is massive, and provides local bands with a fantastic chance to get their music heard by large audiences and industry heavyweights. Whoever wins the Australasian Final will be flown (expenses paid) to the World Final, where they will play off for a first prize worth US$100,000 and the winners the title of ‘Best New Band in the World’!
The Gold Coast/Tweed Heat will be judged by some very experienced music industry honchos, which bands will love showcasing their talent to. Local bands will be assessed by Luke and Tali from Radio 97’s Breakfast show, and Ray Burton singer/songwriter of many top-20 hit songs, including the Helen Reddy song I Am Woman.
GBOB is not only about giving bands performance opportunities. It also offers musicians free stuff, which we all know they love! As well as the trip overseas, there are lots of other great prizes to be won in GBOB. These include GigLaunch subscriptions, FujiFilm cameras and Converse Chuck Taylor shoes… pretty damn nice!
Music lovers should come along and check out the Heat too, and vote for their favourite band. Who knows, maybe the band they vote for will be Australian, or even the world’s next big thing!
