About the Program

For one hot night The Museum transforms into a music festival with two separate battles and hundreds of audience members enjoying a myriad of sounds. With a club-like vibe, The Gold Stage features bands of 3 or more musicians, while acts of 1-2 perform in a cozy coffee-house ambience upstairs on the Cube Stage.

This year's prizes include $500 for the winning band on the Gold Stage, $250 for the winning act on the Cube Stage, and studio time donated by Faultline Studios for the winners of both battles.

The first two rounds are decided by our panel of judges - professionals from the music field, including musicians, producers, and radio hosts. The judges also offer a private workshop for the performers as an educational component before the Battle.

Audience vote decides the final winners, so don’t miss this chance to support teen talent!
