More About the Quay Four Battle of the Bands
Every Tuesday night from 2 May 2017, bands will descend upon Quay Four at the Waterfront. Each band will battle it out to see who is crowned the 2017 champions!
This is definitely one of the “must attend” events for any cover band or restaurant band. The prize pool is one of the biggest in the country, so it’s no wonder that so many bands enter. Furthermore, the V&A Waterfront is a hub of tourist activity. So by playing at Quay Four you will have the potential to reach an international audience. This is a rare opportunity for most local bands.
And because of the level of interest, you can be assured of the quality of each band. So in addition to getting a great night out in the Mother City, you can enjoy some stellar music.
The battle is open to the public, with different bands battling every week. Each week will have a winning band, with the finals taking place on the 29th of August. So if you are looking for some great music at a great Waterfront restaurant, then be sure to book your table.
