Doors @ 8:30pm / Music @ 9pm

Are you the next big thing in contemporary classical music? Forget all the embarrassing, ritualised humiliation of televised talent contests – Nonclassical’s Battle of the Bands presents the cutting edge of what’s happening now in the classical world, from newly composed works to live electronics. Now in it’s fifth year, Battle of the Bands is an exciting opportunity to perform at one of the UK’s leading alternative classical nights and get involved in the scene. Some previous winners have gone on to release albums on Nonclassical Recordings and perform at our events.

It is an open contest for contemporary classical groups and soloists – instrumentation is limited only by your imagination! Any combination of acoustic and electronic instruments will be considered. Just email [email protected]

The top prize is a slot at a future Nonclassical club night and more.
