Are you the next big thing in the music world?


Are you the next Oasis, Beatles or Rolling Stones?

If you dream big and your band rocks in more ways than one then you could be on the road to fame with the help of Trafford Music Service.

The Service is on the lookout for the borough’s best young bands for this year’s glittering Battle of the Bands competition at Stretford High School.

Groups in the Battle of the Bands competition will be battling it out for an amazing top prize – playing a live gig at Manchester’s Band on the Wall.

And last year’s winners, a band called Evolution, had the time of their lives when they played at the iconic venue.
Ruth O’keefe, Head of Trafford Music Service, said:

Our Rock School performance followed by our Battle of the Bands is our celebration of rock music in Trafford.

Trafford Music Service has a fantastic Rock School, based at the Claremont Centre on Wednesday evenings, where Trafford students can learn from some of the very best teachers and equipment on our Jam Pods.

Battle of the Bands is an evening where we invite all bands run by Trafford pupils: whether they learn with us or not:  to take part – with the winner going on to participate in the Greater Manchester Music Hub’s final contest at the legendary Band on the Wall.  It’s great to be able to raise the profile Trafford’s talented rock musicians and we encourage children to take part. Any bands wanting a performance opportunity should visit Trafford Music Service’s website for entry details.”

To take part in the Battle of the Bands, please apply by 11th November by emailing music.service@trafford.gov.uk
Trafford Music Service provides high quality music making opportunities to thousands of children across the borough.
