Loudoun Battle of the Bands

Loudoun’s Battle of the Bands is a joint venture among PRCS, Loudoun Youth Inc. and the Loudoun County Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The annual competition supports YAC’s mission for teens, by teens. It also provides a free platform for teen musicians to play for a live audience with professional sound mixing and constructive criticism by a panel of industry professionals serving as judges.

During the first three battles, artists will be competing for first place, second place, fan favorite and soloist. The four winners from each night will compete in the final battle. Prizes are awarded to the winning acts.
