The Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival is organising a Battle of the Bands this weekend, July 29 and 30 at Live Fact, Kota Damansara. It was created to celebrate, support and recognize the excellence of young, original bands, in line with the Festival’s theme, You, Me + The Arts.
Based on votes and judge’s choice, eight bands have been shortlisted to advance to the YSDAF2018 Battle of the Bands showcase at Live Fact. The eight finalists will battle each other through live performances as they give it all they’ve got to secure both the judges’ and audiences’ hearts and votes.
During the live show, the band with the highest cumulative score will be crowned the Grand Prize winner, and will walk away with RM 2,000 and a spot to perform at the YSDAF Finale weekend in August.
Each day will see four (4) bands battle it out, each to perform 4 songs, including 2 original compositions. The show is free for all and starts at 8pm on both days.
As a festival that thrives on innovation, YSDAF understands the power dreams hold. Dreams guide us and inspire us to move forward. For the Battle of the Bands, it means creating fresh, new material that reaches out to the audience.
