Musical talent will be spilling out of the Queens Park Theatre Amphitheatre on Sunday when the Battle of the Bands returns.

The area’s top musos will be going head-to-head in a bid to win cash prizes across various categories.

City of Greater Geraldton mayor Shane Van Styn said he was looking forward to the musical showdown.

“Battle of the Bands always lives up to the hype and I am sure this year will be no different,” he said.

“Once again there are cash prizes up for grabs as well as awards for the best original song and best under 25s band.

“I encourage everyone to come down, experience some fantastic performances from local musicians and enjoy a great afternoon out.”

Last year’s contest saw 14 bands take to the stage, with Arctic Monkeys cover band Chilly Chimps named best youth band, Good Strife taking out best original song and heavy metal band TQSM featuring Ian Weggler winning the overall prize.

This Sunday’s battle, supported by Rio Tinto, will be held from noon to 4pm. The bar will be open from 3pm to 5pm, with food vendors on site throughout the event.

Registration forms for both individuals and bands can be found on the city’s website.
