THE annual Battle of the Sounds contest will be held at Cheltenham Hall on Friday evening (17 August).
Music lovers can join in and cheer young singers on in a fierce but friendly competition of musicians battling it out to become the winning act to represent Kingston at the regional final.
Winning that final will hand a band the chance to reach the grand final at next year’s St Kilda Festival.
Melbourne based metalcore band Pridelands are headlining on Friday and last year’s Battle of the Sounds winner Sienna Rose will be back on stage as the opening act.
The Battle of the Sounds is hosted by Fuse Productions and Kingston Youth Services supervised by the state government’s FReeZA Program and the Push Inc.
The FReeZA Program is a youth development program giving young people planners the chance to hold events in a safe venue that is drug and alcohol free.
The Push Inc is also youth focused and a not-for-profit statewide youth music operation that delivers a range programs and events “in an effort to better the future Victorian music industry”.
Entry to the event is by gold coin donation going towards charity so everyone is invited to enjoy the event for a good cause.
The Battle of the Sounds will be held on Friday 17 August, from 6.30-10.30pm at Cheltenham Hall, corner of Nepean Highway and Charman Road, Cheltenham.
