Battle of the bands 2015 // TUESDAY 17 February


The Russet, Hackney Downs Studios, Amhurst Terrace, London E8 2BT


Our famous annual Battle of the Bands returns in February! It's a unique event in London, a kaleidoscope of the most original new voices on the contemporary classical scene, from avant-garde classics to new work with electronics, spoken word or improvisation.

Are you the next big thing in contemporary classical music? Forget all the embarrassing, ritualised humiliation of televised talent contests - Nonclassical's very own Battle of The bands presents the cutting edge of what is happening now in the classical world.

We've held the competition for six years now, with previous winners such as The Mercury Quartet having even gone on to make excellent albums on Nonclassical Recordings.

The whole event will be live streamed here (starting 17 Feb - 8PM GMT):

Information for Entrants
