Annual Battle of the Bands Entry Now Available for Young Musicians

Young musicians are once again being invited to enter Courtenay’s annual Battle of the Bands contest. This event gives musicians 19 and under the opportunity to showcase their talents to a panel of judges and a live audience, with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

Open to all eligible bands from the Comox Valley and areas north on Vancouver Island, the contest is considered an excellent opportunity for our young musicians to jump start their musical careers.

Sponsored by the City of Courtenay’s July 1st Committee, the event has been a feature of Canada Day celebrations for many years. Co-sponsors include Dove Creek Recording Studio, Long and McQuade Musical Instruments, and Goat FM radio station.
