Battle of the Bands

How do you get noticed as a band these days? It’s not always easy, but luckily the Push Start Battle of the Bands gives aspiring rockers and rollers the chance to shine. Hosted by the awesome FReeZA team, regional heats take place from February to August each year. Regional finals then take place between October and November, with the Grand Final finding home at the Push Over festival in March. On August 7 the Geelong heat will take place at Courthouse ARTS. The event is being headlined by 2013 runner-up and Geelong hometown heroes, Residual. Since their outing, the band has played shows in Adelaide, Warrnambool, Sydney and the Gold Coast. They also managed to sell out their hometown show at Beav’s Bar. Residual’s latest single is ‘Numbered’.
