2018 Battle of the Bands

13th Annual Battle of the Bands: Sunday, May 20th


The Village of Brookfield and A Sound Education are hosting the 13th Annual Battle of the Bands.  This year’s battle will be Sunday, May 20th from Noon to 4:00 pm. Whether you’ve come to the battle every year since it’s start, or you’ve never been before, this is a great year to join in the fun.

This year, Brookfield will no longer be just a qualifier for the statewide Battle of the Bands, but the regional battle for our area. This means two things.  First, we will have bands from all over our local area in our battle. Also, the winners of our Battle of the Bands will go straight to the state competition.

Bands will compete for a one Song Mixed and Mastered “Radio Ready” package from The Jam Lab ($1,000 value -not to exceed 10 hours), as well as the opportunity to move on to the statewide competition at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield.

In addition to some great music, there will be much more for the audience to enjoy. Food will be for sale from Salerno’s of Lyons. There will be two free raffles available you can play. The first has lots of prizes from local businesses. The second will be for one of the two Fender electric guitars donated by A Sound Education. And also, of course, plenty of FUN.
